Peter Jones

The second part of Pete Jones' article on ToffeeWeb, and what a learned piece it is. Latin and its usage in the world of football, the Everton badge and so much more. Excellentia.
hall of fame 99 The Nursery
Peter Jones

Not only is Pete most knowledgable about the history of Everton FC, but he is also a expert on the history of the First World War, and I have benefitted from his help and advice many times in the past. This is a superb article, again on ToffeeWeb. Pete says, 'In a region of France known as the Forgotten Front lies an area dubbed “the Nursery Sector”, where new formations arriving on the Western front in WWI were often given their first front line experience. One was the 2/10th (Scottish) Battalion of the King’s Liverpool which included Corporal Wilfred Toman, formerly of Everton FC who was killed there on 2nd May 1917.'
A fascinating article, expertly researched and written.
