One of the greats

Another week, another festival. I was a guest of Savills at the Cheltenham College ground for the cricket yesterday. A sunny day for once, and a very good lunch! Some enjoyable cricket too, though when they play in pyjamas I really can't think it's the same game as I used to adore. 50+ years ago I could tell you about most things going on in the first class game, and so my memory clock was set ticking when a familiar face appeared, on his way into the other half of our tent. Notwithstanding he's now 85, I recognised at once that it belonged to Tom Graveney.
