Sydney Pawling was honorary treasurer of the Middlesex County Club, succeeding the late Mr. Gregor MacGregor in that post in December, 1919. A bulwark of the Hampstead Club for years Mr. Pawling was in his younger days an effective fast bowler, taking many wickets in club cricket, but so far as can be judged -his opportunities in high-class company were few- he never reached the county standard. Lack of command over his length, perhaps, discounted his pace. At the time of his death he was head of the publishing firm of W. Heinemann, Ltd.
