About this memory

Tottenham Hotspur went to Germany, Italy and Switzerland on a 9 game tour in 1914 just before WW1. John Fleming was part of that squad. They played Bayern Munich on 9 May 1914 and won 6-0. John Fleming scored in the Spurs v Milan on 13 May. So this postcard is from this tour, and the visit to Munich on 9 May 1914. John is seated third from the right, front row, without a hat. Other members of the team are also on the open bus.

    My grandfather Walter Scott Tattersall is seated in the third row nearest to the camera. A member of my family has the same postcard.
