    Netherlands Photos of Netherlands and Yugoslavia in 1961

    Just noticed that Wikipedia, courtesy of the Dutch archives, has some photos from the 1961 World Championship Pool C match between Yugoslavia and the Netherlands, available at the following link. However I have no idea what team is which, and am wondering if anyone here has any idea? It doesn't help that one team is clearly wearing a sweater with "S HC" on it, which is not from either country's name, and the other has a small patch that I can't discern.

    Interesting!!!

    I know that there was no competition in the Netherlands at that time.
    Only HYS HOKY The Hague played "Friendly" games against all kind of teams from Europe.
    On march 4th the Netherlands played indeed against Yugoslavia but I do not know the shirts either.

    So the letter E H and C say nothing to me. Anyone else?

    Great thanks for noticing that detail. I figured someone here would know what was on those sweaters.
