Lord Dalmeny, who died from blood poisoning on November 11, aged 21, won considerable distinction as a cricketer at Eton. In addition to being a free hitter, he was very effective with his fast medium bowling and could make the ball come back or swing away. Playing against Harrow in 1928, as the Hon. A. R. Primrose, he scored 4 and 19 and took four wickets for 87. The following season at Lord's, by brilliant driving mainly to the off-side, he hit 65 out of 116, including twelve 4's, off the Harrow bowlers, this score following upon an innings of 65 and a bowling record of four for 91 in the Winchester match. He finished the season with 299 runs, average 33.22, and 38 wickets at a cost of 28.88 apiece. Lord Dalmeny made a few appearances in the Middlesex XI and played in one match for Oxford in 1930. He became Lord Dalmeny in May, 1929.
