Left-arm spinner Hedley Verity took 1,956 wickets in first-class cricket in 378 matches for Yorkshire at an average of 14.90 and 144 wickets in 40 Tests for England at an average of 24.37. Verity is widely regarded as one of the most effective slow left-arm bowlers to have ever played cricket. He also had one of the best records of any bowler against the legendary Sir Donald Bradman. Verity joined the Green Howards in 1939, and after training was posted overseas to India, Persia and Egypt, achieving the rank of captain. During the Allied invasion of Sicily in 1943, Verity was severely wounded and captured by the Germans. Taken to Italy, he died in Caserta from his injuries on 31 July 1943, aged 38, and was buried there.
