Profile

Percy Tyson "Plum" Lewis, who died in Durban on January 30, at the age of 91, was the oldest Springbok and the last survivor of the South Africans who played in the 1913-14 series. Following a splendid innings of 151 for Western Province against the MCC in the opening match of that tour, he was selected for the first Test Match in Durban, but failed to score in either innings, being caught Woolley b Barnes in both innings. He first appeared for Western Province in 1907-08 and, at the conclusion of the MCC tour of 1909-10, he was a member of the team picked by HDG Leveson Gower to tour Rhodesia.
