Wear and some damage to inner lining, the cap has one small moth hole to the rear otherwise in good condition. A rare Bodyline tour cap, one of only seventeen caps issued to the players on the tour. A cap from the '1932/33. Bodyline' series must surely be the ultimate possession of any serious cricket cap collector. A rare and almost unique cap from the iconic series which caused such controversy and ill feeling with its leg theory bowling which has had long lasting repercussions on both Test and County cricket
Estimate: £3000/5000
Hammer price: unsold
The cap was purchased by the vendor from Eddie Lawrence, cricket writer and Somerset cricket lover but originally from Yorkshire, in 2010, in the year that he died. The cap emblem and makers label have been checked against the 'Bodyline' 1932/33 cap held at Lord's museum, which was Harold Larwood's, and they are identical.

Bill Bowes playing career with Yorkshire spanned from 1929-1947. He played in 372 first-class matches as a right arm fast bowler and a right-handed tail end batsman. He took 1,639 wickets with a best performance of nine for 121 and completed ten wickets in a match 27 times. He scored 1,531 runs with a highest score of 43* and is one of very few major players whose career total of wickets taken exceeded his career total of runs scored. Bowes was a late selection for the tour, just three days before the ship sailed, for England's tour of Australia and New Zealand in 1932/33. He played in only the second Test on the Australian leg of the tour, at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, in which he bowled Don Bradman first ball and that was his only wicket in the match, which Australia won by 111 runs. Bowes played in the second Test against New Zealand at Eden Park in Auckland and took six for 34 on the first day to bowl New Zealand out for only 158. Bowes played in twelve first-class matches on the tour and took 37 wickets with his best performance the six for 34 in the Auckland Test.

The tour of Australia & New Zealand in 1932/33 was Bill Bowes only overseas tour with the M.C.C.

Padwick identifies the two Vagrants as Saunders and Smith. In fact there was no Smith on the tour and he appears to have confused him with G.G.S. [Smith] Lindsey.

After victories against All New York and the Gentlemen of Ireland, the Canadians lost to the Gentlemen of Scotland. In England they experienced mixed fortunes but returned home deeply impressed by the extent to which cricket was part of national life, so much so that the banners commemorating Queen Victoria's Jubilee read fifty not out'
