First World War

The First World War saw InterVarsity and intra-club hockey suspended (1915-1918), as many men joined the war effort.

From MUHC, 24 of the 32 men who had to that point played InterVarsity joined up. Records are scarcer beyond that, but at least three other men, and two women from the club (then only in its eighth year) also served. Given their education, many served in various medical or engineering capacities. Some were officers, others Privates & NCOs.

Of those we know of, six gave their lives, and at least nine were wounded.

A brief overview of the service history of these MUHC men & women can be found here. Some notable individuals include:
