Harry Smith, the Gloucestershire professional, died on November 12, aged 46. He succeeded Jack Board as wicketkeeper in 1914, and did good service until illness checked his career in 1932. After an unexpected return to the side in 1935 he retired and was for a time coach to the county colts. Besides being a reliable wicketkeeper he was a sound batsman and in 1928 played for England against West Indies at Lord's. Against Hampshire at Southampton in 1919 he made 120 and 102 not out. A noteworthy incident occurred in that match. Pothecary, the last Hampshire batsman, played a ball from Parker into the top of his pad, shook it into Smith's hands, and was given out caught contrary to law 33 B which declares in such a case that the ball becomes dead.
