The first one is Hants (‘2nds’) v Combined Services. We’ve played them before

1948 at Aldershot. Jimmy Gray was making his first-class debut and Derek Shackleton had made his in the previous game. With Leo Harrison who first played in 1939, they won the Championship in 1961. Gray & Harrison are still alive. PBH (Peter) May made his first-class debut for the Services side who also included Hampshire’s JE Manners.

Hampshire 269 (Shackleton 69, Waldron 52, Deighton 5-78) beat Combined Services 99 (Hill 6-31) & 110 (Hill 6-63) by an innings & 60 runs

1949 at Portsmouth: Combined Services 237 (RG Wilson 100, Walker 5-40) & 264 (Oakman 79*, Dean 6-73) lost to Hampshire 335 (Rogers 107, Walker 69) & 168-5 (Guard 58, Blake 54, Gay 4-57) by five wickets

In both first-class matches in the 1940s the Combined Services sides were strengthened by National Servicemen who played county and Test cricket.

1963 at Portsmouth not first-class: Hampshire 353-5 dec (Gray 105, Horton 75, Sainsbury 72)  & 45-4 beat Combined Services 158 (Moylan-Jones 62, Cottam 4-38) & (following on) 239 (Moylan-Jones 97, White 7-56) by 6 wickets.

This is not a tip but thought I might alert you to a horse running in the 2.10 at Lingfield today with a Hampshire connection. Ingleby Mckenzie trained by Mick Channon a 9/2 shot at present.
