One out of the blue today.
I was back in my home town of Portsmouth last week, and - whilst in a print shop getting some photos - I noticed this wee gem:
That's right - it appears that Monty himself was the President of Pompey Football Club during their post-war heyday!
I love the contrast between the keeper ('BUTLER, E') and the club pres ('FIELD MARSHAL THE VISCOUNT MONTGOMERY OF ALAMEIN KG, GCB, DSO').
In my head, they had Monty running round the pitch before the matches like a novelty mascot to whip the crowd into a frenzy.
PS: Did you know Pompey once held the FA CUp uncontested for six whole years? - That's right: they won it in 1939! [link here].
