yes all of those were killed some were at other clubs by then but had played for us, we lost 3 players who were still playing for us when they went to war, Donald Bell played for Palace when he was at school down in Westminster we were an amateur team when he played (he played professional for Bradford Park Avenue), Edward Bell played for Palace when were an amateur team also.
I know of 4 that survived the war Harry (Horace) Colclough (our first ever England International), Jack Alderson(it wouldn't be him he was a keeper played 192 games for us) and Dick Allman (was a reserve player) and the last one William Middleton he played for us for a season went to war and played a season after 1919-1920 then went to Scotland.
the only one I know who was captain was Harry Hanger he was killed in 1918 (he enlisted in 1915).
a lot of info I got was from a person on a Crystal Palace forum..
