In 1953/54 he captained Gloucester to what was then their most successful season and played for Western Counties against the All Blacks. I'm compiling a profile of John Taylor for the Gloucester Rugby Heritage website and would be interested in any information on his date and place of birth, early rugby occupation and life after his rugby career ended. Gloucester Rugby Heritage is a Heritage Lottery funded charity dedicated to preserving and communicating the history and heritage of Gloucester RFC".
