BTH 2nd XI cricket team 1953

A few weeks ago we printed the BTH 1st XI cricket team, sent in by Peter Smith. He’s now given us the 2nd XI in 1953, taken at the back of the BTH Rec Club.

Peter can remember nearly all the names and perhaps readers may be able to clarify those he’s not sure of.

(Back row): ??? Bodicott; Horace Fields; Sunil Chakrabarti; Dave Marriott; Arthur Stowe; David Chandler; Frank Harper; Charlie Underwood; ??? Bodicott; John Clarke.

(Front Row): Alan Clapp; Harold Hickman; Richard Glister; ??? Smith; Bill Hall; Bert Brown; Joe Jennings??; unknown??; Roy Bateman.

Rugby Home Guard Choir

Since the picture from their early days was printed in our May 8 edition, Rugby Male Voice Choir are delighted to have spoken to their second-ever musical director, Bill Spence, who is now 97.

He has identified two more choristers, Gilbert Robinson (who is fourth in from left on the second row) and Bert Timmins (who is on the extreme right of front row.)

The choir will celebrate their 70th anniversary with a concert at St Andrews Parish Church on June 7. For more details please see their website: www.rugbymalevoicechoir.com
