As published in The Cricketer July 25th 1953  
This was the Coronation Year and the summer England regained the Ashes. This was a fairly wet summer as some will remember so to complete this seven  match programme without interruption was lucky indeed! 

The photograph above was taken on the Friday of Cricket week. Eric Warburg was a Nomad and became a Vice President of the club. He was also a founder member of the Hurlingham Cricket club becoming a Vice President. He captained the first ever Hurlingham Cricket match. Eric played Monday to Thursday then got married on Friday to an Austrian lady but held the Wedding reception at Hurlingham hence the picture above. He then played saturday and Sunday before setting off on honeymoon.. Eric wrote a short memoir of his Nomad days His grandson Alex Smith played for Nomads decades later.
