World War One rugby roll of honour: Charles Pritchard

There were 13 Welsh rugby internationals who lost their lives in World War One. But who were they?

Charles Pritchard was born in 1882 in Newport, Monmouthshire and played a starring role in the Wales side which beat the touring All Blacks in 1905.

He died on the Western Front in 1916, aged 34. As a captain in the South Wales Borderers, he was mortally wounded in a raid on German trench positions.

Rugby historian Gwyn Prescott talks about his career and war service.
