Cricket - Lord Dalmeny
Lord Dalmeny died from blood
poisoning in 1931, aged only 21.
Formerly the Hon A R Primrose,
he played for Eton and also once
for Oxford and a few times for
Middlesex. This rather poor
quality postcard appears to show
him at the Oval !

England 1926, Oval
I think that this is a postcard of the England XI at the 5th Test at the
Oval in 1926. England won this match, and regained the Ashes.

1942. Wisden states that, although
Walker toured England with the
1930 and 1938 Australians, he
never appeared in a Test Match.
He failed to return from a bombing
mission over Germany in the
autumn of 1942.

In July 2020 we received the following information about the
postcard on the left:-
You surmised 1935.That doesn't work, because Reggie Schwarz,
one of South Africa's spinners of the Golden Age, died in the
Sapnish Flu pandemic of 1918! (Curious that he - just - survived
WW1, only to fall victim to the COVID19 equivalent of a century
ago.) Your featured postcard is quite a bit older. The squad
suggests the South African representatives in the "Triangular
Tournament" of 1912, where the home team, the South Africans
and Australia were pitted against each other.The two anomalies
are Charlie Llewellyn and Gordon White, who are not in the
photocall, but played in that series. I think it must be 1912,
though. I'm not sure for which Lord's match.The squad in the
photocall is substantially different from the South African
touring side of 1907, so I am fairly sure the year is 1912.
