Profile

Sir Edward Hugh Bray, C.S.I., who died at Rye, Sussex, on November 27, aged 76, played both cricket and football for Cambridge. After three years in the Charterhouse XI he got his cricket Blue in 1896, and played in the match which Oxford won with the record victorious score of 330 for 6. In a strong batting side Bray was No. 9. He made 49 and 41, but next season, when Cambridge won by 179 runs, he did little. From 1895 to 1899 he appeared occasionally in the Middlesex XI, and toured America with P. F. Warner's team in 1898. After many years in business in Calcutta and Bengal, he became Controller of Contracts at Army headquarters with the temporary rank of Brigadier-General.
