Profile

John Hemsley Cameron, the son of Dr J.J. Cameron of the 1906 West Indies team to England, died in Chichester, Sussex on February 13 aged 85. He was a middle-order right-hand bat and versatile bowler of high tossed leg-breaks and off-breaks who sprang to fame when, as a Taunton School pupil, he played for the Rest against Public Schools at Lord's in 1931 and recorded innings figures of 10 for 49 in 19.1 overs. He made his debut for Somerset the following season and played in 47 matches for them until 1947.
