Former Dulwich cricketers used the opportunity of the Australia Transplant XI playing the GB Transplant XI at Dulwich to meet together. Robyn Hookes was making her first visit to Dulwich to see where her husband David played in 1975.
Here are a few shots (courtesy of Peter Rochford and John Soldan) of the former players sharing a joke or perhaps sharing a memory of a particular game…..
