Patrick Durlacher, who died suddenly while fishing in Ireland on February 26, aged 68, was in the Wellington XI as opening batsman from 1919 to 1921. In 1919 and 1920, he was partner to G. J. Bryan and in the latter year at Haileybury the pair scored 258 in two and a half hours for the first wicket, Bryan making 147 and Durlacher 124. Durlacher did not get a cricket Blue when at Cambridge, but after a successful season for Buckinghamshire in 1920, he turned out in a few matches for Middlesex during the next three years. A versatile athlete, he was first string in the Wellington Rackets pair who won the Public Schools Championship in 1921 and he gained a Blue as a cross country runner for Cambridge.
