An excerpt from the Western Times, published Tuesday, December 29, 1914 revealed that on Christmas Day, the men of the 10th Battalion North Staffordshire Regiment stationed at
Okehampton selected a team to play against the local football team. The match drew a very large attendance to witness the match, which ended in a 1-1 draw.
The Times would like to thanks Collin Goodwin for supplying this information.
