24 June 1942: Welsh Guards' cricket

24 Wed. Rather warm, dull, but sun shining later in day. Cycled to Mitcham saw local cricket team play Welsh Guards. Woods for Mitcham hit out with great power. Also rode as far as Sutton Common Rd in evening. Aunt Liza and Gwen called in evening.

Note: examples of wartime cricket matches played by regiments can be found on the web. For instance: 1941 June 25.  WELSH GUARDS versus COLDSTREAM GUARDS Cricket at LORDS - an easy victory for the Regiment assisted by a century by 2/Lieutenant E.T. PELHAM.
