Dilys Halford

June 7, 2011

The Birmingham Mail writer, Brian Halford, has put together a blog which follows the Warwickshire County Cricket Club 100 years ago, in the 1911 season, when they won the championship for the first time.  Hat-tip to Steve Nicholls for tweeting about it).  A fascinating read, if you are interested in cricket, or history or both.  Today’s introduces us to Algernon J Halford’s wife.  It’s a lovely piece, in which he discovers (through reading the local paper) that his wife is a suffragette.  I am quite sure his response is a true reflection of husbands’ attitudes of the time.  I fully recommend you read it.

If only she were real, she’d be right there under D on the brimmin list!

    Kind words, Jaki.

    The putupon Dilys features in some of the earlier entries as well, particularly this one which should have caused stuffy old Algernon quite a bit of concern…
