Today we launch a new page on the website:

Is It True?

Over the last few years we’ve discovered that Arsenal’s history isn’t quite how many historians have recorded it. We’ve written a number of blogs explaining what is wrong and how it came about; some stories have been misinterpreted whilst some have been complete fiction!

Henry Norris - not all bad

There are also some stories that don’t appear to be true but actually are, so we’ve given more detail about them.

Now we have started to collate them into one place so that they are easily accessible.

You can access the page via the menu at the top of any page on the website.

There are still more myths that we know of and we will be adding them to the page as we write about them.

Arsenal Charity work

St Dunstan’s Hostel for Blinded Soldiers and Sailors

Previously we published a short blog based on EC Williamson and his work at Regents Park with St Dunstan’s.

Looking into the story it became apparent that while Williamson was the torch bearer for the charity, the club as a whole gave great assistance in the few years after the First World War.
