E. C. Egan, often referred to as Ernie, was a world-class professional fast bowler. He took part in the cricket match against the Walmington-on-Sea Home Guard. Only featured in one episode, Egan's final appearance was during the cricket match with the Home Guard when he performed a ridiculously powerful bowl only to break his shoulder and be forced to retire, resulting in the climatic victory for the platoon.
