Message Sujet du message: British Army/French Army/Belgian Army Cup - 1940s > 1960s

After World War II ended, 'conscription' aka 'national service' remained in force in many countries. In the UK, it ended in 1963. During this time, the armed forces football teams could field really strong sides full of top-class professionals, established internationals, and so on. For example: the British Army national team, the Combined Services, and regional Commands, played annual matches v Scotland, England, Ireland, club sides, League selects, etc. However, they also played other army national XIs. Particularly an annual cup called the 'Triangular Tournament' or 'Kentish Cup' played by Belgium France and Britain, 1-home-1-away each season. To show how strong these teams could be... in the 1956 tie British Army v French Army, which finished 1-3, the British scorer was the great Man Utd forward Duncan Edwards and 2 of the French goals were by Just Fontaine!! In 1962, the famous Scottish international, Jim Baxter, wasn't able to play for Rangers in a Scottish Cup Semi-Final as the Army took him to a game v Belgium Army. I've been trying to find details of these games.  I have dates (mainly from programmes) but little else in particular for the Belgian<>French match, or British Army away games.  Here's what I have so far. Can anyone help find more dates or results, or suggest books/websites? 

Please help

I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
