Our 'Appeals' page is a service for members (reflecting a similar page in our quarterly magazine). They can take the form of sharing or requesting information, requesting help in research, offering items for sale, indeed the scope is as wide as members require! If you wish to add your appeal here, please contact our Secretary.


Rob Franks - Research

Member Rob Franks is researching about HHL (Bert) Kortlang who played first-class cricket for Victoria (1910-12), Wellington (1922-27) and represented New Zealand in 1924. The globe-trotting sportsman also played cricket extensively on the east and west coasts of USA, as well as in Canada, Bermuda and Argentina. He was a billiards expert and even turned out for the Tottenham Hotspurs Baseball Club in 1908. If any members have information or photographs about Kortlang, then would you pleaseĀ email Rob

Terry Cartwright - Downsizing

My wife and I are downsizing and this forces me to look for a new home for my precious cricket magazines and books, including vintage back issues of The Cricketer and Wisden Cricket Monthly, most issues from 1950s to 1990s. Also some Wisden Cricket Almanacks. I am not seeking any payment, but all must be taken together - not piecemeal. There are hundreds of magazines all packed in boxes and many are in folders - probably a load for a big estate car. Contact me to arrange collection from Hampshire before end of January.
