Many thanks for the confirmation about the initials standing for Royal Artillery Ordnance Depot. I think I can identify at least one other person in the photo, from a photo of the Tredworth RFC, 1920-21 in which my grandfather is again shown, with an 'A. Jones' in the front row. It would be really interesting if there are any records of the names of the players of the R.A.O.D. team. Many thanks.

Dave - our residents stats man has come up with the answer: "R.A.O.D stood for Royal Artillery Ordnance Depot. There were a number of these depots around the country (especially during WW1) and one was at Didcot. I assume the team that played Gloucester Seconds came from there. The seconds played them twice in season 1919-20. They lost to them away (10-14) but won at Kingsholm (24-0)." Hope this helps!

In the 1919-20 season match record there is a reference to Gloucester 'A' team playing a team called R.A.O.D. on the 22nd November. They appear to have beat Gloucester 14 -10. Since my grandfather, Thomas Miller, played for the R.A.O.D. I would be very grateful to discover exactly what these letters mean! I have a photograph of Thomas with the rest of the team, that was printed in the Citizen a few years ago, but the question being asked then was what R.A.O.D. stood for. Many Thanks Dave Miller Gloucester

The match that I think you are both thinking of took place on 19 November 1994. Canterbury won 70 -7, scoring 12 tries. I wasn't able to attend and was spared the job of reporting on the match to my Kiwi cousin in Christchurch! I was at Kingsholm six days later though, when Gloucester bounced back, beating Bridgend 45-0.

Peter Arnold wrote in the programme for the Bridgend game: It would be churlish , dog-in-the-manger, redolent of sour grapes, and generally improper of me not to make reference to that quite horrible thrashing a half-strength Gloucester took at the hands of the superb Canterbury side last Saturday. In my view, it was, quite simply, a privilege to watch them.

Hi John I don't know if this is the game you are thinking of, but there was definitely a game in the earlyish 90's when Canterbury (NZ) put 70 or 80 on us.....I remember a pretty rapid Fijian winger scoring about 4 tries, and a kiwi dressed up as a sheep wandering around Kingsholm.

I remember watching a game at Kingsholm back in the 80s. I`m sure it was a French team. Gloucester lost by about 80 or 90 points....Nobody I know remembers this game.Was I dreaming...???? Can anyone remember such a match?
