I spent a couple of hours browsing the Guide to the International Brigade Archive, Moscow: Selected Images, ALBA.PHOTO.177 and found an additional photo series of the team in American Football uniforms. I have had a copy of the team photograph for over a decade as the team included three Black volunteers. In Folder 192: 15th International Brigade Sports Contest and Football Team there is a small series of seven photographs relating to this football team (Box 2, Folder 18, 177_19206-19212 [Moscow #s 5/192/6-12]).
The series includes two photos of the team in huddle, an action shot entitle “Play along the line of scrimmage” , two shots of the team celebrating victory and a team shot of the oposing team. I often wondered whether this team actually had played any games. Apparently they did have at least one scrimmage.
I would like to be able to identify the volunteers in the photos.
