    "This is a duplicate copy of items 2364.03 and 2365.04" should read duplicate copy of items 2365.03 and 2365.04.

    The title should read "South Africa v Worcestershire".

    This 3-day match was played on 30th April and the 1st and 2nd of May 1947.

    The location is the County Ground, New Road, Worcester.

    There are some inaccuracies in the shots list - both Tuckett and Rowan were playing for South Africa, not Worcestershire, (and indeed whether the shots in question even are of those two men is open to question, given the distance of filming).
