*Note: The two games listed against Switzerland were classed as Services XI, 
post-historically. 
However, the "England" team were not only English in total but also wore England 
shirts. On the official illuminated address all players received, these games were 
listed as they were in the official FA history (written in 1953). Switzerland B 
had beaten Switzerland 3-1 also in this triangular of matches.
Other sources also indicate that at the time these were probably classed as more
official as they are now but are listed for reference.
