This hockey match happened in Germany in 1938. It features the women’s teams of England and Germany and, interestingly, the German girls give a Nazi salute before beginning game while we hear the national anthems before the game. It also seems that the crowd are giving the Nazi salute towards the British team as the British national anthem is played. British Pathé has a lot of amazing and historical videos.
