Newfoundland cricketer finally gets Wisden obituary

JS Munn JS Munn

John Shannon Munn, Newfoundland’s greatest cricketer died tragically in 1918. Despite playing in 10 first class matches for Oxford with considerable success, his death was not noted in the obituaries in Wisden’s Cricketers Almanack, the “cricketer’s bible”, likely because the editors were overwhelmed by the number of young cricketers dying in the First World War.
Ninety-seven years later, Wisden has remedied the omission, as Munn is included in a section of supplementary obituaries mostly composed of others who died in WW1.
