Cricket: 1960s OKs at Lord's

David Holland (OK 1966) was able to arrange a box at Lord’s for the second day of the Middlesex versus Warwickshire match on September 1st. 18 members of the Club, nearly all members of 1960 school cricket teams, attended and enjoyed a day of food, drink and reminiscense. The fact that there was 20 minutes of cricket because of poor weather was not a major incovenience.
