Seriously, who are the Barmy Army? I have followed English cricket for an awfully long time, I love England from the bottom of my heart and I follow county cricket (I support Lancashire but love all of our counties, except Yorkshire). I was very fortunate to visit Australia and see the first two Test matches of a very memorable and historic series in 1986 and believe me there was no such thing as the Barmy Army. England cricketers and commentators often talk in glowing terms of the 'Barmies' but I don't know anyone who is a 'Barmy'. Please tell.
