Biography

A Canadian officer who served as a captain in the Royal Dublin Fusiliers regiment of the British Army during World War One, Colin Carruthers was awarded the Military Cross for gallantry during the disastrous Gallipoli landings. He played for the successful British Army hockey team which was packed with Canadian talent and dominated the domestic ice hockey scene in the 1920’s.

Whilst the British were outclassed by the two North American teams in 1924 they edged into the bronze medal position when they narrowly defeated Sweden. Colin Carruthers scored ten goals at the Games including the two that took Britain to a brief 2-1 lead over Canada in a game that was eventually lost 2-19 and only his brother Eric scored more for the British team at the tournament. Carruthers returned to the Olympic Games in 1928 but failed to add to his tally of goals.
