Almanac Flashback – ‘Creeket iz life’: Mathilde de Hauteclocque

Fathers’ Day has come and gone, but there are always more stories of family and fathers from the Almanac archives…

Mathilde de Hauteclocque tells the story of her love of cricket and in doing so reveals much about her family, especially her father, the French Count, and his deep appreciation of the game (‘Creeket iz life’). A great tale of where life takes you and what it offers when your eyes are open and alert to possibility.
