The Christmas Day truce during the First World War when troops from both sides met in no man's land to play football and exchange gifts on December the 25th, 1914 has been captured by a military artist. It's hoped the sale of the painting of men from the Cheshire Regiment will raise money for soldiers' charities.

The focus was on the game. We were watching what we were doing during the game. Mr Dalglish noticed a few people behind the Liverpool goal just before the referee stopped the match.
Mr Dalglish says he had no understanding of the cause, extent or seriousness of the problem as he returned to dressing room
Mr Dalglish said his son was at the game and he was concerned about him - on the way home he said "there was 'hardly a word spoken' on the team bus on the way home."
