(1921-2008)

Sir Humphrey Lyttleton, or Humph to his close confederates, is the adjudicator and organiser of the famous radio programme I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue.

Ably assisted by the lovely Samantha, he announces games, supplies the two teams with first lines and ideas for their activities, and often has to sort out the mess when Tim Brooke-Taylor does an inexplicable reverse-Lexington to Mornington Crescent without loading all bases. Whilst not an actual player in recognised competitions, many manoeuvres have been named in honour of his unassailable control of the game as we know it.

Much sadness marked his passing in April 2008. [PW][AB]
