Un-official Challenge Cup programme 1946
Photo: Kevin Higgins

This is an un-official version of the programme for the 1946 Challenge Cup final at Wembley. This is the type that the RL continually warned against. Nevertheless, its a good thing that someone had the foresight to get hold of one if only so that it could be displayed on Wigan World in 2009!!
