ONCE UPON A TIME IN SPORT OLD DAYS IN CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 5 August 1916
?dg&ATlMC ^n ^ ,in spopT| OLD DAYS IN CRICKET. In some of the newspapers stories of the bell topper days in cricket arc being told. Quite a number of the ancient knights of bat and ball ?till living either played against the first and second English teams that visited Australia, or witnessed the matches. But it is astonishing how often the remembrance of incidents is not] as clear as the old fellows believe it to be. This applies only to those who have to rely on memory. Others who have kept diaries or scrap-books are not so prone to romance, or to mix one year or decade with another. A diary of the second tour was kept by George Anderson, the old English player. Its contents show him to have been a bad sailor. 'October 16 : Very sick and all day in bed.' 18th: Left berth, but could not get farther away than the lounge — very sick and weak.' Such are the entries which testify to the early miseries of mal-de-mcr in the small ships of the time. The team had a big public recept...
