  1. British Pathé says

    According to a researcher who has contacted us, Fry was 48 when he returned briefly to first class cricket after WWI. He played just 2 games in 1920, neither of which were at Lords, which is where the film in this clip was shot. The clip could be from the 1921 game between Hampshire & Middlesex. Does anyone have any more information?
