Archie Wiles was a solid right-hand batsman who played with distinction for Trinidad for a decade and a half after the Great War, and his batting in 1931-32, when Trinidad won the inter-colonial tournament, won him a place on the 1933 tour of England. But Wiles was almost 41 and well past his best. He made his one and only Test appearance at Old Trafford, aged 40 years and 346 days, making 0 and 2.
