    The game was played on 22 March 1922.

    The French ladies team is called Olympique de Paris. Their opposition are the ladies team of "Dick, Kerr & Co Ltd".

    "M/S of the two captains" - the French captain, on the right, is Violette Gouraud-Morris, who was proficient at many sports, as this attachment will detail......
