"When I saw the Pistols and The Clash I realised it didn't seem that difficult, they didn't seem like they could play very well either, so the thing was to form a band then work it out. We didn't even know who was going to play what - we passed around all the instruments until we found what we were comfortable with. I wasn't comfortable with any of them so I became the singer."

"Huddersfield Cricket and Athletic Club"?

Just a guess, probably not.

Switzerland national football side maybe (judging by the acronym CHF) although the date predates their first international?

Could be a red herring, but I would imagine the CHF will be the key to sourcing it.

 

Switzerland's first international was in 1905 so can't be that.

After all that it looks rather like it might be a Hull FC RL cap :
