Taken from the student publication, MARMION PEP, this is Marmion's second team. Note the nickname Foxes - this is before Marmion became a military school.
We couldn't find the very first edition of the MARMION PEP, so we are missing the first 3 games of the season here.
This is the bottom half of the previous photo of the MARMION PEP.
