    MCC team leaving South Africa.

    Several shots of cricket team members on the deck of ship.

    Amendment August 2011:

    Tall man with hat could in fact be Sydney Barnes. A legendary crickter who played for Staffordshire cricket club, not Middlesex. It is also possible that this film was acutally taken in 1914.

    Amendment April 2012:

    This clip is of the MCC team departing for South Africa on the 1913/14 tour, the final international Test tour prior to WW1. Clearly seen are Frank Woolley, Sydney (S.F.) Barnes, Johnny Douglas, Albert Relf etc.
