British Officers Playing Rounders in Suda Dockard

The Blockade of Crete: British Officers Playing Rounders in Suda Dockard. The Englishman must have his sport wherever he goes and the naval officers on board our ships lying off Crete are no exception to the rule. Having obtained leave to land, a dozen officers, principally midshipmen, one afternoon took on shore some stumps and a ball. Rounders was the game chosen. On account of the ground a rule was made that either side hitting the ball into the sea or onto the roofs should be out. Some remarkable fielding was witnessed. Once the ball went into the sea and the fielder after it! Date: 1897
