VE Day and Blackheath Rugby Club

Posted by

Written by Andrew Lock The commemoration of the surrender of German Armies and the extinction of Nazi Germany, 75 years ago on the Eighth of May, is necessarily muted this year.

As one-sided a contest as you’ll get.  Blackheath scored ten tries, five in each half, in this demolition of struggling Ionians who are now mathematically relegated.
