Richmond Hawks 1934-35
This picture is of Richmond Hawks whilst on a tour to Paris, Prague and Berlin during the 1934-35 season. The Hawks made several trips to the Continent in the International Club Tournament (played on a league basis in two preliminary groups). The head gear - berets - is mystery but it could that Hawks acquired the berets in Paris where the played Les Francais Volants. Richmond topped their pool but ended third in the final four team pool.
