Following up our previous post, here is a photograph of the cricket team that both A. A. Milne and P. G. Wodehouse were members of.
Founded by Peter Pan creator Sir James M. Barrie, some of the other teammates reads off like a roll call of Edwardian England’s most famous authors, including Arthur Conan Doyle, Rudyard Kipling, H. G. Wells, and Jerome K. Jerome. The Allakahbarries (Allah akbar meaning “Heaven help us” in Arabic), played from 1890 until 1913, when World War I brought an end to the team.
