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.

Ellis Pembroke Robinson. 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.
