The Watford Choral Union won a shield in 1923.

Click for names & bigger picture
The Male Voice of the Watford Choral Union won the Huntley Challenge Shield at the Annual London Musical Competition Festival, in the Westminster Central Hall in March 1923.

All the people in the picture are named and it would be interesting to know if any of the men in the choir are the (great) grandfathers of people still living in the Watford area. From their ages I would expect many would have fought in the First World War. 

I will not be researching the picture further so feel free to comment below.
