1924 Oxford University Boat Race Crew
The Boat Race is an annual rowing race between the Oxford University Boat Club and the Cambridge University Boat Club, rowed between competing eights on the River Thames in London. The two have been at it every year since 1829. I learn that it holds some significance because Hodge rowed at Oxford. Though what appears to be a strapping (and very stylish—notice the variations in which to wear a scarf) young group of men, that 1924 crew didn’t win. Perhaps Hodge had it hanging for motivation, having stroked Oxford to victory in the 2005 Boat Race.
