Army Sports 100

The Army Sport Control Board will soon be 100 years old and to  mark the occasion it will be  publishing a commemorative book to celebrate a century of sport in the Army.

The book cover all sports, with a small section on orienteering, which will comprise a combination of text and photographs.

Given the 1 page constraint, the article will consist of a nutshell summary of the sport’s role and history in the Army, how the club has progressed since it was founded and how many participants today.

If anyone has historical information regarding the introduction of orienteering in the Army and photos from the past, please send them to the AOA Sec before Easter.
