The World War II Victory Cup, played at the end of the 1945/46, marked the end of the temporary football tournaments invented for the duration of the Second World War. The Victory Cup was donated by the SFA to the Scottish League for competition during the war and was played for as the Southern League Cup.

However, it was decided that Aberdeen should hand the trophy back and that the winners of Victory Cup would retain the trophy in perpetuity.

Queen's stay in the competition was brief, and after drawing 0-0 at Cowdenbeath in the first leg, suffered a 5-3 defeat at Hampden two days later.
