The Arsenal Anniversary Files

Concerning that headline you might want to look at 12 July 1998.


 

Below are the Arsenal (and occasionally one or two non-Arsenal) anniversaries for today taken from the complete files of over 6000 Arsenal anniversaries which appear on the Arsenal History Society website.  An index to the Anniversary files can be found in the left column of this site under “Pages”

The current historical series on this site is Henry Norris at the Arsenal.   An index of all our series can be found on the home page.

You can find an index to all the anniversary files in the Pages section on the right… we’ve changed the home page around a bit to make it more readable.
