  • Description

    First part of this story might be missing. According to old record the following footage featured:

    Tunbridge Wells, Kent. 1955 ?

    Tyson bowling cricket ball at speed. Wicket keeper takes Frank Tyson's ball, Colin Cowdrey (cricketer) comes out - at wicket No.10 bowling. No.3. Wilson, Cowdrey's partner, running. Cowdrey receives ball from Tyson, Cowdrey hits Tyson and runs. Crowd.

    Colin Cowdrey is interviewed about his troublesome feet. "What do you think of all this hoo hah Mr Cowdrey?" is an example of the type of question asked. Very "of its time". Looks like Colin has been discharged from the R.A.F. on account of his bad feet. He takes his sock off to show us one of the offending articles.
