Postcard sent by Bray to R J Crisp and E A B Rowan on 29th June 1935 asking for their autographs.
Robert James Crisp DSO MC (28 May 1911 - 3 March 1994) was a South African cricketer who played in nine Tests from 1935 to 1936 before living for a while in England. He appeared for Rhodesia, Western Province, Worcestershire and South Africa. Though his Test bowling average lay over 37.00, Crisp had a successful first-class cricket career, with 276 wickets at 19.88. He is the only bowler in first-class cricket to have taken four wickets in four balls more than once
Eric Alfred Burchell Rowan (20 July 1909 - 30 April 1993) was a South African cricketer who played for Transvaal, Eastern Province and South Africa.
An opening batsman, Rowan was a dominant personality in South African cricket for more than 20 years on either side of the Second World War. He sometimes batted without gloves and, allegedly, without a "box" protector, and he was fearless against authority too. This led at times to his omission from the South African Test team, notably when he was left out of the 1947 tour to England.
