Pete Jones
The story of a battalion of friends from the same office who fought shoulder to shoulder for the honour of Britain and the credit of Liverpool during World War I and their connection to Everton.

A Bit of a Coincidence

Pete Jones
A lot of people who visit the First World War battlefields talk about curious, even strange experiences. However, one coincidence makes one wonder sometimes. It is a story about two sportsmen and two letters with the backdrop of the terrible events of July 1916. It even has a link to a famous hostelry on Goodison Road. The coincidence is remarkable and can perhaps be interpreted as more than mere chance.

Journey’s End: A Summer Saturday on the Somme

Pete Jones
A story about distances and journeys: a football tour, a new team, and a story that ends with journeys that took three men across the fields of northern France and the bloodiest day in Britain’s military history.
