Bill Palmer RIP


I just got this from cousin Howard Palmer 
"I am afraid to have to announce that my father, WAP (William/Bill) died this morning, 31/10/20 after a short illness. Cherry is bereft, but bearing up well and in good health. Dad had been hale and hearty, if a little immobile, until about 3 weeks ago when he became rather weak and eventually chair and bed-bound for the last 10 days or so. He was 95 and a bit, so an excellent innings.

Talking of which, he once played in the Sedlescombe match when I was 13 (and he was 42) and opened the innings with Trevor. I outlasted Trevor and Mike sent WAP in to take the number 3 slot at the other end. He hadn’t played cricket probably since he was 13 and was promptly out first ball!

Happy memories."

Bill Palmer married Granny's sister Cherry. The photos were taken between 1967 and 1969. The one at the top right is almost certainly just before Bill got his duck. Unless I am mistaken, Bill was Sherriff of Berkshire and scion of the great biscuit makers Huntley and Palmers.
