Sir Julein Cahn, Bart., who died on September 26 at his home, Stanford Hall, Loughborough, Leicestershire, aged 62, was a great supporter of cricket. The XI which he captained played good matches each season at his West Bridgford ground, and he took teams on many tours, including Jamaica, 1929, Argentine, 1930, Denmark and Jutland, 1932, Canada, U.S.A. and Bermuda, 1933, Ceylon and Singapore, 1937 and New Zealand, 1939. Twice he was President of the Nottinghamshire club and defrayed the cost of building new stands at Trent Bridge; he also provided a covered practice shed so that the county players could keep in training throughout the winter. He represented Leicestershire for some years on the Advisory County Cricket Committee and attended the meetings at Lord's dealing with the post-war plans. Keenly interested in hunting, he was at different times Master of the Burton Woodland, Pytchley and Fernie Hunts. Sir Julien inherited a fortune from his father and, apart from business interests, devoted his life to sport and philanthropy.
