Surrey County Cricket Club

SCCC lost 48 men in action in the First World War, for nearly 100 years theirnames have been commemorated in the Long Room at The Oval.

Surrey CCC partnered with The Royal British Legion this summer as the country came together to say Thank You to all who served, sacrificed, and changed our world during the First World War.

The club worked with the Legion throughout this summer's Test Match between England and India, with the final Test of the series taking place between Friday September 7 and Tuesday September 11. 

Another area of partnership is with 'The 48' a book written by Surrey Member and military historian Philip Paine, in collaboration with BBC Test Match Special commentator Daniel Norcross.

The book tells the story of the 48 men listed on the Surrey CCC War Memorial on the wall of the Long Room in the Micky Stewart Members' Pavilion, examining their connections with Surrey as well as their journeys during the First World War. It is available in the club shop and online for just £10, with all profits being donated to The Royal British Legion. 

Richard Gould, Chief Executive of Surrey CCC, said: "Surrey are proud to be partnering with The Royal British Legion to help commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War."

"Our country owes more to the sacrifices of these men than it is possible to express and this anniversary seems a particularly appropriate time to say Thank You."

"Through 'The 48' and the events being held during the Test Match, the club is honoured to be doing its bit to help a very important national campaign."
