Profile

Rev. Archie Fargus, who died on October 6, aged 84, has been obituarised before in Wisden. However, this was 48 years before his death. The 1915 edition said Fargus had gone down with the Monmouth, the ship on which he was acting-chaplain, in action in the Pacific. But he had missed a train and failed to rejoin the ship. Fargus, whose father Hugh Conway was a well-known Victorian author, won a Cambridge Blue in 1900 and 1901 and played 15 games for Gloucestershire. His actual death was not reported in the Almanack.
