Windsor, Nova Scotia, Canada. Senior team. Played in the Western Nova Scotia Senior League 1910-16. As Garth Vaughan points out in his book, "The Puck Starts Here", "Long before Adolph Hitler and the Third Reich began to use the swastika as a symbol for their organisation in Nazi Germany, the emblem was used by a variety of cultures all over the world. It signified good fortune. Like the Greeks, Romans and American Indians, one senior hockey team in Windsor adopted the swastika in 1910". Martin Harris also noted that the Nazi Party rotated the swastika 45 degrees and that a vertically aligned swastika is still a perfectly respectable symbol.

Windsor, Nova Scotia [web site]
Windsor is the Canadian town generally referred to as The Birthplace of Hockey in the Canadian media, the town is also called "The Little Town Of Big Firsts", because many things started there before they started in the rest of Canada.  Canada's first college, King's College, was established in Windsor in 1789. It was the boys at King's College School who adapted an Irish field game to the ice of their favourite skating pond, called Long Pond. They called the game Ice Hurley which later developed into Ice Hockey.
