150 YEARS OF RUGBY MEMORABILIA
1871-2021

The Rugby Memorabilia Society’s second Members’ Publication: For this, their second volume, the RMS saw some eighty of their members responding to the request to find items from their or their club’s memorabilia so that, in total, every one of the 150 years between the RFU’s 1871 formation and today would be covered. That was achieved, sometimes with more than one artefact.
