Second Lieut. Hugh Montagu Butterworth (9th Rifle Brigade) was killed in Flanders on September 25, aged 29. He was educated at Marlborough, where he was in the XI in 1903 and 1904, being sixth in the averages in the former year with 13.36 and first in the latter with 34.13. In 1904 he played a first innings of 78 in the match with Rugby at Lord's. Proceeding to Oxford, he made many good scores for University College, but did not obtain his Blue, although he was accorded a few trials in the XI in 1906 on the strength of an innings of 130 in the Seniors' Match, wherein he and C. J. Farmer scored 157 for the first wicket. In 1905 and 1906 he played Rackets (Doubles) for Oxford v. Cambridge, in the former year having the Hon. DN Bruce as a partner and in the latter GN Foster. Subsequently he settled in Wanganui, New Zealand, where he kept up the game, and in the early part of the 1914-15 season scored 296 and 311 in consecutive innings.
