Daniel King was known to his contemporaries as 'the great cricketer' but it is likely that his exploits on the cricket field would have been long forgotten but for the chance survival of this portrait painted around 1835 and a pocket handkerchief. The handkerchief depicts an adaptation of Hayman's painting 'Cricket in Marylebone Fields and surrounded by the 1744 Laws of the Game. On the back of the frame is a newspaper cutting dated 1869 refers to having seen an old silk handkerchief given by Daniel King to Mr J. Humphrey of Donnington near Chichester in Sussex on his deathbed. The handkerchief was presented to Sussex County Cricket Club at Hove by Mrs Elizabeth Humphrey of Chichester. Daniel King was born in 1784 and first appeared in the local papers as a cricketer of note in 1814. Local newspapers continued to record his prowess and King first appeared in 'Scores & Biographies' in 1822 when he was top scorer for Goodwood, Boxgrove and Hampnett versus Midhurst at Goodwood Park. After a ten year gap he re-appeared in Scores & Biographies' in 1834 at the age of fifty, opening the batting with the Earl of March for Goodwood versus Duncton again at Goodwood Park. He died in 1836 aged 53 and the gentlemen of Chichester, having a short time since, entered into a subscription for the purpose of having his portrait painted, and presenting it to him as a mark of respect. Mr Lush was employed to paint the picture. It is believed that the painting was planned to be presented in the week of his death. The melancholy task was doubtless performed and the widow posses the relic of her lamented partner. John Lush's diary reveals that he was a cricket enthusiast and had almost certainly watched Daniel King play. John Lush painted the original portrait of Daniel King some time in 1835 or 1836. The lithograph of the painting was made by Sharp of Gerard Street, Soho, London soon after. This lithograph appears to be a proof copy, 'Proof' printed to the right hand border to the right of the title

Lipschitz of Hamburg of a match in the Brighton Ground. Later states of which at least three exist, bear the names of both the lithographer and of the London publishers. The picture is based on and closely resembles an engraving published in February 1849 by W.H. Mason, engraved by G.H. Phillips from a picture executed by W. Drummond with some assistance from C.J. Basebe. The original painting commenced in 1843 took five years to complete, and it is not surprising to find that in that interval before publication six of the characters had died, and the players changed so that the personae dramatis do not agree with any recorded contest between Sussex and Kent'.

The Australian Services XI was a cricket team comprising solely military service personnel during World War II. They became active in May 1945 after the defeat of Germany. The team played matches against English cricket sides of both military and civilian origins to celebrate the end of the war. These matches were aimed at increasing morale in the war-ravaged English cities and as a means of reviving cricket after the conclusion of fighting. The end of the war marked the start of the 1945 cricket season. Plum Warner organised a series of matches between England and Australian servicemen, known as the Victory Tests, to celebrate the end of hostilities. However, Australian cricket administrators would not accredit the three-day matches as official Test matches, arguing that there were not enough Test-level players in the armed services; Lindsay Hassett was the only Australian who had Test experience.

Cyril Price, also known under the pen names of 'Gwynne', 'Kim' and 'Spike', was a Welsh artist, an ex-miner who, when the mines closed, began contributing drawings to the Bristol Evening World. From the 1930s he was a front page and interior artist for the comic weeklies of the Amalgamated Press and worked on titles such as Illustrated Chips (Private Potts 1934), Comic Cuts (Quip and Cranky 1934), Joker (Bert and Daisy 1937), Jolly (1938) and Butterfly (The Jolly Days 1939). Later he worked for the Daily Graphic and his work for this was collected together for The Whisker's Annual. From 1944, the Daily Sketch published Price's political cartoons, who signed them Kim

He also gained fame as a cartoonist for his work on the soldiers newspapers, 'Blighty' magazine. His output was prolific and his signature, 'Mac' appeared on drawings in scores of publications, big newspapers and magazines including Tatler, Daily Mirror etc. He drew war posters for the Government in both world wars.

The year 1939 was remembered for dull weather, a dry spring and a very wet late summer and autumn. In popular belief, if it rains on St. Swithin's Day, it will rain for 40 days, which it appears to have done. 'Jupiter Pluvious' was the God of Rainstorms.

George Butterworth (1905-1988) worked as a British political, strip and sports cartoonist, and later as a book illustrator. During World War II his cartoon Maltese Cross in the Daily Dispatch gave groundswell to the island receiving the George Cross for heroism in April 1942. Butterworth's lampoons of Hitler garnered him enough attention to place him on the dictator's "Death List." An avid football supporter, he provided illustrations for the Manchester United F.C. programmes from 1933 until 1958.

Yorkshire & Somerset 1934-1952 had match figures of thirteen wickets for 125 runs, taking five wickets for eighty runs in the first and eight wickets for thirty five runs in the second innings.
