KILDEY, EDWARD KEITH, who died on February 12, 2005, aged 85, was a tall fast bowler who took just one first-class wicket: Len Hutton. His only match was for Tasmania against MCC in 1946-47, and he had Hutton caught at square leg off a mistimed hook. Kildey was in the Royal Australian Air Force for nearly 30 years and, when the 1956 Olympics were held in Melbourne, was one of a group of servicemen drafted into the clay-pigeon shooting as non-scoring competitors, because of a shortage of entrants. It was later whispered to him that, had he been eligible, he would have won the bronze medal.
