Profile

HARBOTTLE, BRIGADIER MICHAEL NEALE, OBE, who died on May 1, 1997, aged 80, played one innings in his only first-class match, and scored 156, for the Army against Oxford University at Camberley in 1938. Harbottle emerged as a talented left-handed batsman at Marlborough. He was rejected by the Navy because of bunions, but these did not bother the Army and he became captain of the Sandhurst XI. In the 1960s he became chief of staff for the UN peace-keeping force in Cyprus and was later an organiser of Generals for Peace and Disarmament.
