In 1927 my Dad William Grant won a Gold Medal playing for Lower Burma in the William Younger Football Challenge Cup. Can anyone tell me more about this Cup and which countries competed in this competion.

I don't know about this, but its unlikely that countries participated. Its more likely a club competition. During those times, British regiments used to field football teams, and few local clubs. Burma, India all were under British rule.

For example, Indian club Mohun Bagan has won this trophy 3 times <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.sabujmaroonswapno.com/smsweb/common3.php?x=trophy"; onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://www.sabujmaroonswapno.com/smsweb ... p?x=trophy</a><!-- m -->
