A Lost Tour Resurrected: Richardson & Bradman’s Aussie Tour of America in 1932April 23, 2015
Don Bradman’s North American tour opens up on film … ABC News (Australia) …. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ijx14YGtLbE&feature=em-share_video_user…. recovered from some spot in Canada … and introduced and elaborated upon by Mike Sexton, Simon Smith, Don Beard Malcolm Knox and Ian Chappell. The Australian team was captained by Victor Richardson of South Australia and his grand-nephew Ian Chappell adds some insider insights. But perhaps the most informative comments come from Bradman’s close friend Don Beard of Adelaide (himself an institution in the state).
The rising star Don Bradman had only agreed to tour if he could bring his newly married wife Jessie with him. So Jessie had a squad of cricketers with her on their honeymoon!
