Wisden Obituary
Gunn, Brian George Herbert, died in Cairns on September 3, 2001, aged 79. Kent had won none of their first five games in 1946 when they drafted Gunn, a 24-year-old Dartford batsman, into their middle order for the match against Nottinghamshire at Gillingham. His 39 was the second-highest score in the first innings - only the captain, Bryan Valentine, made more runs for Kent in the match - and the 233-run win brought Kent's first Championship points of the season. At Gravesend a fortnight later, however, Gunn's was the second of three wickets in one over for Gloucestershire's startlingly quick bowler George Lambert. He then shared in Kent's home-and-away wins against Warwickshire, taking the catch that put paid to the threat Peter Cranmer was posing at Edgbaston, but his 105 runs in those four games, at an average of 15.00, constituted the sum of his first-class experience. Gunn played Sydney grade cricket after emigrating to Australia in 1951 and later worked in journalism in Queensland.
