If you were interested in 'Let Them Play By All Means' and had checked on Amazon only to see that it was currently unavailable try ypdbooks.com they have copies available. There is a link from www.dropkickbooks.co.uk to the product page on ypdbooks.

Below is what a former Baildon member said about the book:

'Bought for me as a birthday gift. Fascinating history of Rugby Union played through the war years. As a member of one of the clubs featured (BAILDON) added interest.However the main well written well documentated historical facts remain for me the true value of this book. An insight into the games played Union V League wartime fixture, another great feature. Great buy, pity not a hard back. Donald A. Clark. Northern Highlands.'
