Cap - Queen's University Belfast RFC 1911-1914

Object Id: 
Cap awarded to Thomas Wallace
Dr. Tom Wallace a versatile three-quarter, who readily, adjusted to full-back in which position he played most games for Cardiff, was our captain, and Idris Richards the vice-captain—for second time. Dr. Tom was an Ulsterman born in Ballymayo, Northern Ireland and had played for Queens University Belfast before 1914 when he joined H.M. forces, serving firstly the Royal Irish Fusiliers and then the R.A.M.C. In 1919 he took up general practice in Cardiff and joined the Cardiff club, and one of the earliest attributes he showed was his determined and robust tackling, he was recognised by Ireland for which country he played three times in 1920.
