In 1942 the Government tried to find ways to entertain people who could not pack their bags and take off to the seaside. With the news from Leicester and the weather forecast for Cardiff I hope this might cheer you up. It includes Hampshire’s John Arnold, Arthur Holt and Lloyd Budd plus Jack Treherne whose son Roger is still on Hampshire’s committee. John Arlott once described Jack as perhaps the best local bowler never to play first-class cricket for Hampshire although he did play for the 2nd XI.
