Bernie, of course, was a fine all-round player who left his mark on the game.
It is his only son Reginald who is more recognizable to many. Reggie, as he was affectionally known, was a journalist and television newsreader back in the 60s and 70s.
It was fair to say he enjoyed a drink, or two, or three and many looked forward to his regular appearances on ITV's News at Ten, where he often turned up red-faced [for those with colour tv] his toupee askew and his words slurred. He always managed though to make it through to the end of the bulletin.No cricketer himself he died young from pancreatic cancer.
