Bolckow Vaughan Ladies Football Team 1918

Described as the Runners Up in the Ladies Munitionette Cup in 1918, these ladies would make a valuable contribution to the World War I industry. The team is also named.
Back row: Emily Milner, Amelia Farrell, Greta Kirk, Violet Sharples.
Front row: Elizabeth Powell, Mary Mohan, Mercy Page, Winnie McKenna, Gladys Reece, Olive Percival, Anne Wharton.

Joyce Henry tells us: ”This picture shows my Grandma Elizabeth Powell Front row extreme left kneeling, she later be Freeman.”

Whilst Paul Boden tells us: ”I have the same photograph and the information I have is that the lady that is seated second from the right is Florence O Hanlon (nee Short) Florence was the younger sister of William Henry Short VC. Florence and William were first cousins of my mother Caroline Boden (nee Short).”; thanks to Paul for that update.

    When Florence O’Hanlon nee Short put names to the team she played for in the Steel News back in December 1971, she named the following in no particular order:
    Winnie McKenna Captain who played for England.
    Florence Short age 24,
    Mrs Cheney Forewoman at Cleveland Works
    Maggie Briggs
    Nurse Hall
    Mrs Murphy
    Mrs Leach and her daughter Miss Leach
    Lizzie Powell
    Miss Harrison
    Don’t Know.
    She said the Team Trainer was Ralph Dixon.
    I am researching Florence and her brother William for a film we are making on William Short VC. It would be nice to have full names and positions played. I also require a more recent photo of Florence. Can anyone help?
