This was a team put together after the end of the 1946-47 to go on a tour of England in May & June.
They were the first hockey team to cross the Atlantic Ocean by air as they flew to England and back.
Many of their games were played in 20 degrees-plus weather. Despite that, the attendance was good, usually over 10,000.
This team was unusual in that it had as many junior players as senior. Most touring teams only had a few juniors at most.
Also unusual was the light schedule. They played 13 games in over a little less than two months. The players were able to take trips to other parts of England and Europe.
