Garibaldis/Garibaldians - Nottingham Forest (although the fans are reclaiming that one). I believe we used to use it a long time ago too?

 Wonder what happened when they played the Biscuitmen? One side or other would crumble.

Would be interest in the chronology of that.

My understanding was that we did a pre season tour of Italy under Alex (?) Raisbeck in the 1920's,, leading to early sources accrediting us as the Garibaldians.
