    Thanks to UBC for posting these. I have played Field Hockey for many years;likely with those two young boys next to Harry Warren, who was a Pioneer Builder of the Sport @ UBC, Vancouver and Canada. He is honoured in the Field Hockey Canada “Hall of Fame” & The Order of Canada.

    The inaugural Olympic Hockey Competition for men was held in London in 1908 with England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales competing separately. After having made its first appearance at the London Games, hockey was subsequently dropped from the 1912 Stockholm Games after host nations were granted control over ‘optional sports’.
