Arthur Joseph made one appearance for Glamorgan in 1946 and like many others of his generation, his playing career was interrupted by the Second World War. Under different circumstances, the right-handed batsman and leg-spin bowler would have played far more county cricket.
After serving with the Army in the Middle East, Arthur played several times for Glamorgan`s 2nd XI in 1946, and was also included in the county side for their Championship fixture against Derbyshire at Chesterfield.
Although, he never played first-class cricket again, Joseph continued to be a leading figure in the South Wales Cricket Association, playing for Neath CC and Briton Ferry Town CC, besides later becoming an umpire of note.
