1914 – Ronald Poulton Palmer – England Shirt 

Ronald Poulton Palmer.
Poulton Palmer played 17 times for England, including the first international, played against Wales at Twickenham in 1910, and was captain of the 1914 Grand Slam winning team. He volunteered as soon as war came and by the spring of 1915 was at the front in Flanders, where he managed to play his final game of rugby, captaining South Midland division (Forty-Eighth) v Fourth Division.

While supervising engineering works in a trench just north of Ploegsteert Wood in Belgium he was shot by a sniper. His last words were reputed to be “I shall never play at Twickenham again.”

Captaining England to their second Grand Slam before the outbreak of hostilities in 1914, he was described as the finest threequarter in the world at that time.
Poulton played for Balliol College, Oxford University RFC, Harlequins and Liverpool F.C. Poulton is one of three men to score a hat-trick of tries in The Varsity Match – he scored five, still the individual record for the fixture, in 1909
He captained England during the 1913–14 unbeaten season (now what would be called a ‘Grand Slam’), scoring four tries against France in 1914, in the last test match prior to the outbreak of World War I. Poulton was renowned for his elusiveness and glamorous style of play

The shirt represents the player and the era, and delivers a true vintage look and feel.
