Windsor CC to Host Australian Festival of Cricket – 17 July 19

Posted on February 13, 2019

To commemorate the centenary of the First Australian Imperial Force XI

This coming July, Windsor Cricket Club is going to be hosting an Australian Festival of Cricket to commemorate the centenary of the Tour by Australian Soldiers at the end of the First World War as they awaited ships to return them home.

The Australian Imperial Forces Team toured the UK playing games against some of the historical legends of English Cricket and then, many of the Australian players went on to play test matches for Australia.  All this, following the ravages and losses of the First World War as they waited for the ships that could return them to their home and families.

The day will also act as a platform to build global awareness of PTSD and will be underpinned by the Stand Tall for PTS Organisation out of Australia.

Stand Tall for PTS recently organised the Lightning Bolt 2 event driving 4,500 km across Australia to the Invictus Games, raising awareness again for PTSD.
