Cricket during the Second World War in the Chiltern area was limited but the 1941 season kicked off with inter-platoon matches between the Chesham Home Guard, with C versus D platoon and A versus B. B platoon originally used the Chiltern Rugby Club pavilion as a HQ and the B platoon was the later basis of Fencibles Cricket Club.
