Marbles During World War One

Recommended Posts

Is there any information, stories or pictures about marbles being played during world war one? The National World War One Museum is interested in a presentation about marbles during the war and I am researching. I have seen a picture of a doughboy playing marbles on a road in France. Does anyone know about other examples?

I used to have free access to NewspaperArchive.com.

I would have gotten started over there by looking for marbles stories during the war years. 

But my library's subscription to that ended in July.  :( 


Darn it.

I have searched all of my paper archives and can't find anything other than the postcard of the soldier shooting marbles. That is a tough time period. Lot's of period pictures of children, but anything related to soldiers is a tough find.
