New Bexhillian Magazine article

My most recent article in the Bexhillian Magazine focuses on Canadian sport in Bexhill during the First World War. My broader point is that sport is about more than just recreation. It serves many other purposes. The Canadians in Bexhill used sport to develop fighting spirit and cohesion among the soldiers. It was surmised that if one had confidence in his comrades on the sports field then he would also have confidence in them on the battlefield. This is a perspective that still has credence today from both a military and non-military standpoint. The article can be viewed by clicking here.
