South East Asia Trip of Calcutta XI 1929


This tourist side from the British Indies was generally referred to as Calcutta in the Batavia press; however, it was an unofficial team selected by A.B. Rosser including players from other cities as well. The total squad consisted of only 14 players, so that the team borrowed two players from Singapore Recreation Club for their final match on October 9.
