Toby JonesCranbrook Memories from Toby

Laughing At Life: Peter titled his memoirs Sometimes I Forgot To Laugh. But the laughter-loving man I recall – both from his years in Sydney and through his chatty letters from all over the world over several decades – often did remember to chuckle.


Devon Memories from David

Peter Roebuck was a brilliant captain. Probably the best I played with. He was not conventional and would have been horrified to have been described as such. His idea of a warm up revolved around ‘off you go then and do what you have to’, while his ability to hover at breakfast and cast an eye over those entering and then to make an assumption of the length of time they had been out the previous night was legendary.
