Note: Only Major “Turkey Bowl” Style games played in Stadiums in front of the British & Irish Public in aid of the Red Cross are shown above. From Autumn 1943-Autumn 1944 there were Championships organised in various Divisions, with teams playing as many as 10 games before the playoffs.
94th Bomb Group Fighting Eagles won the 3rd Bombardment Division Bowl in Autumn 1944, and Shuttle-Raders the 8th Air Force Command Championship.
There was also a repeat of the “Tea Bowl” won by Air Force Command Warriors, as well as a second Army-Navy Grid Classic series, with the Army team and Navy team winning one each, as in Winter (Spring) 1944.
