Well, the Cuthbert Ottaway Memorial Fund has finally reached it's target, and the man's grave has gone from this...
... to, well, have a look at this article on the London Historians blog and this piece on the BBC website.
How good is that!?
Thank you to all concerned for their support ... and especially for their monetary donations. It cost a little over £2,500 to make it happen, and a heck of a lot of chasing and harrying from chief campaigner, Paul McKay. Thanks, Paul. Marvellous job.
I shall be further embellishing this website with more information and pictures from the memorial service and the special matches played in Ottaway's honour during 13th-14th August 2013. In the meantime, don't forget to buy the book!
