Who? Why? [Aug. 11th, 2019|09:05 am]
Tony Grist
Andrew Wingfield Digby.

The name arrived in my head in the hours around midnight- and I spent the longest time trying to put a face to it. I was sure I must have known the feller- if only glancingly...

I looked him up this morning. He's a cricketing parson, approximately my age- who played for Oxford University and Dorset and was once chaplain to the England team. At no stage- that I can see- did our paths ever cross. Perhaps I heard him being gossiped about in ecclesiastical circles- not that I was ever much of a one for that kind of shop-talk- or heard him mentioned in Test Match commentaries. I found a cache of pictures and his face is absolutely unfamiliar.

So where on earth- or out of it- did that come from?

Well, it's a good name. I can see why it might hang around in dreams and pop out of your memory in the middle of the night.

Sounds like he might be related to the Digbys who own Sherborne Castle.

I believe he is.

I was researching him and learned that the Digbys and their kin practically run Dorset.
