Colbeck had a fine record as a batsman at Marlborough, but his name will live in cricket history by reason of the extraordinary innings he played in the University match of 1905. Going in for the second time against a balance of 101 runs Cambridge lost six wickets for 77, and looked to be a hopelessly beaten side. At this point Colbeck, in with the score at 11, was joined by McDonnell, and in the course of 85 minutes the two batsmen put on 143 runs together, completely pulling the match round. McDonnell kept up his wicket while Colbeck hit on the off-side with amazing brilliancy. The partnership recalled the memorable stand made for Cambridge in the 1870 match by Yardley and J. W. Dale. Colbeck took all sorts of risks, cutting balls off the middle stump to the boundary, but his eye served him so well that he was very rarely at fault. He hit thirteen fours in his 107 and was batting for two hours and a quarter. Like Yardley in 1870 he had his reward, Cambridge in the end winning the match by 40 runs. Colbeck had splendid figures for Cambridge in 1908, scoring 552 runs with an average of 42, but when tried in half-a-dozen matches for Middlesex in 1906 he did very little. He played one innings of 46 and another of 30 but on all other occasions he failed dismally. In 1906, however, he again did very well for Cambridge, scoring 63 and 44 against Oxford at Lord's, and heading the University batting with an average of 39. Against W. G. Grace's XI at Cambridge he played an innings of 175 not out.--S.H.P.

In his last year he was captain and finished up with an excellent record, scoring 309 runs with an average of 30 and heading the bowling with 33 wickets at a cost of something over 17 runs each. He played five matches for Kent in 1899 and got on remarkably well, making 250 runs in eight innings. In minor cricket Du Boulay was a great run getter.

HARTLEY, LIEUT. ALFRED (R.G.A.), born 1879; killed in October. Lancashire XI. Alfred Hartley could not be classed among the greatest of Lancashire batsmen, but during his few seasons for the county he was invaluable to the XI, his strong defence making him a worthy successor to Albert Ward. He was given three trials for Lancashire in 1907 having shown fine form that summer for the second XI. He justified the committee's action in selecting him, scoring 126 runs in six innings. Having found a place in first-class cricket he improved from year to year, scoring 1,053 runs for Lancashire in 1908, and 1,129 runs with an average of 36 in 1909. Then in 1910 he left all his previous form far behind. Scoring 234 against Somerset at Manchester, 126 not out against Somerset at Bath, and 168 against Leicestershire at Leicester, he had a record for his county of 1,511 runs with an average of 38. On the strength of his fine cricket he was deservedly chosen for Gentleman against Players, both at Lord's and the Oval. The Gentlemen failed dismally at Lord's, going all to pieces on a difficult wicket, but Hartley himself played very well--24 and 35. In his second innings he received two dead shooters in succession from George Thompson. He stopped the first one but the second bowled him. In 1911 Hartley fell off a great deal in his batting, and in the following year he practically retired from first-class matches.--S.H.P.

HATFEILD, CAPT. CHARLES ERIC ( Eton, Oxford University and Kent), born March 11th, 1887, was killed on September 21. Though his plucky hitting won the University match for Oxford in 1908, Hatfeild did not as a man fulfil on the cricket field the hopes formed of him while he was at Eton. When in 1903 he played his first match against Harrow at Lord's he gave promise of developing into a first-rate slow bowler. Bowling left-handed he had a nice easy action and for a boy a remarkable command over his length. No doubt the slope of Lord's ground helped him to make the ball go with his arm, but be that as it may, he took twelve Harrow wickets at a cost of 91 runs, and had a big share in gaining for Eton a single innings victory--their first win since 1893. On that early form however, Hatfeild never improved. While he remained at Eton he steadily went off in bowling, and it was his batting rather than his bowling that gained him his Blue at Oxford in 1908. He played for Kent whenever he was wanted, but though always an enthusiastic cricketer he was not good enough to secure a regular place in the county team.--S.H.P.

JENNINGS, CORPORAL DAVID WILLIAM (Kent Fortress Engineers), was born on June 4, 1889, died in hospital at Tunbridge Wells in August, after an illness due to shell-shock and gas. As a cricketer Jennings was a trifle unfortunate. Had he belonged to a weaker county than Kent he would no doubt have taken a more prominent position. All the time he was playing Kent was so rich in batsmen that he could not secure an assured place in the XI. Still, of the chances that came his way he made good use. He first played for Kent in 1909 and in 1911, when only tried in a few matches, he headed the averages. In 1912, playing six times, he came out second, scoring 100 against Hampshire at Southampton, and both in 1913 and 1914 he did very well without rising to quite the first-class. In 1914 he hit up an innings of 106 against Essex at Tunbridge Wells.

Major Schwarz, as every one knows, was famous as a slow bowler. Few men did so much to establish the reputation of South African cricket. He learnt the game in England and played for Middlesex before going to South Africa. In those early days, however, he did not make any great mark. His fame began when he returned to this country with the South African team of 1904. Studying very carefully the method of B. J. T. Bosanquet, he acquired, and afterwards carried to a high standard, the art of bowling off breaks with, to all appearance, a leg-break action. He did very well in 1904, but his success that year was only a foretaste of far greater things to come. In the brilliant tour of 1907 he and Vogler and G. A. Faulkner raised South African cricket to the highest pitch it has ever reached. He was less successful than his two comrades in the Test Matches against England, but for the whole tour he was easily first in bowling, taking 143 wickets at a cost of 11½ runs each. He proved rather disappointing in Australia, and in the Triangular Tournament in this country in 1912 he failed. Before going to South Africa Schwarz was an International half-back at Rugby football, playing against Scotland in 1899 and against Wales and Ireland two seasons later. He also played for Cambridge against Oxford in 1893. He was born on May 4, 1875, and was educated at St. Paul's School. Inasmuch as he always made the ball turn from the off and had no leg break Schwarz was not in the strict sense of the word a googly bowler, and was in this respect inferior to his colleagues Volger and Faulkner. Still, when at his best, he was a truly formidable opponent, his accuracy of length in the season of 1907, in combination with such a big break, being extraordinary.

The writer of the obituary notice in the Times said: Personally `Reggie' Schwarz was a man of exceptional charm, and his untimely death will bring real sorrow to his hosts of friends in many parts of the world. He had the great gift of absolute modesty and self-effacement. No one meeting him casually would ever have guessed the renown he had won in the world of sport. Quiet, almost retiring, in manner; without the least trace of side; and with a peculiarly attractive voice and way of speaking, Schwarz impelled and commanded the affection even of acquaintances. During his years in South Africa he was secretary to Sir Abe Bailey--a post which his social gifts enabled him to fill with remarkable success. Before coming to Europe for service in France, he had won distinction in the campaign in German South-west Africa. All who knew him knew that at the first possible opportunity he would be in the field in France, quietly and unostentatiously devoting all his gifts--gifts that were bound to ensure his success as an officer--to the service of his country. He had been wounded twice.--S.H.P.

STAUNTON, REV. HARVEY (Chaplain to the Forces), of Staunton Hall, Notts, died on service in Mesopotamia, January 14, aged 45, Selwyn Coll., Camb., XI; Notts County XI, 1903-4-5. To Notts people he was perhaps best known as a member of the county cricket team, for whom he played fairly regularly from 1903 to 1905, inclusive. A batsman of the punishing type, his highest innings was against Middlesex at Trent Bridge in 1904, when he scored 78, and one of the notable features of his brief career in county cricket occurred at Gravesend in a match with Kent. More than one of the Notts batsmen had had a blow on the body from the fast bowling of Fielder, and Mr. Staunton was violently struck on the knee by an extra speedy ball. His revenge was to despatch the four succeeding deliveries to the boundary!

WHITE, GORDON C., the well-known South African cricketer, died of wounds in October. Born on February 5, 1882, he was in his thirty-seventh year. Gordon White did much to establish the fame of South African cricket, but in England he never quite came up to the reputation he enjoyed at home as a batsman. He came here in 1904 and 1907, and visited us for the third time with the team that took part in the Triangular Tournament in 1912. In the tour of 1904 he scored in all matches 937 runs with an average of 30, his highest innings being 115 against Notts at Trent Bridge. For the great team of 1907, though he scored 162 not out against Gloucestershire at Bristol, he was disappointing as a batsman, the soft wickets being quite unsuited to his fine off-side hitting, but he bowled leg breaks with marked success, taking 72 wickets at a cost of just under 13 runs each. In 1912 he did not do himself justice as a batsman, and as a bowler he failed. He took part in five of the half-dozen Test Matches, his best score being 59 not out in the drawn game against Australia at Nottingham. When getting runs, Gordon White always looked to be a first-rate batsman, his style of play being very free and attractive.

WHITEHEAD, LIEUT. GEORGE WILLIAM EDENDALE (R.F.A., attached R.A.F.), born 1895, killed on October 17. Among the many public school cricketers lost during the war perhaps none, except John Howell of Repton, had better prospects of winning distinction at the game than George Whitehead. In the Clifton College XI for four years--he was captain in 1913 and 1914--he had a brilliant record at school. Starting in 1911 he was third in batting with an average of 33, and in the following year he did still better, playing a remarkable innings of 259 not out against Liverpool and averaging 41. Moreover he took fourteen wickets with a fairly good average. Against Cheltenham he played a first innings of 63. In his two years as captain he was conspicuously successful, heading the batting in both seasons with averages of 46 in 1913 and 40 in 1914. He also bowled well, especially in 1914, when he took thirty-six wickets for a trifle over 13 runs apiece. He played three times at Lords for Public Schools against the M.C.C., and in 1914 he was given a couple of trials for Kent.

An old Cliftonian writes:--

Goerge Whitehead was a perfect flower of the public schools. He was not limited to athletics only, great though he was in this respect. Intellectually he was far above the average, and was as happy with a good book as when he was scoring centuries. His ideals were singularly high and though gentle and broad-minded, he always stood uncompromisingly for all that was clean. So modest was he, that strangers sometimes failed to realize his worth. He insisted on being transferred to the Royal Air Force from the R.F.A., fully appreciating the risks, because he knew of his country's then urgent need of air-men and so he died, greatly patriotic. Clifton has lost more than 500 of her sons in the war. She is proud of every one of them, but of none more than of this very perfect gentleman.

WILSON, T. BONOTE (Royal Fusiliers), died of wounds August 24. T. B. Wilson, a younger brother of the Harrow and Cambridge cricketer, F. B. Wilson, was in the Harrow XI in 1910 and 1911, being on the losing side both years. He did very well at Lord's, scoring 53 and 0 in the memorable match in 1910 when Harrow in their second innings went down before Fowler's bowling for a total of 45, and playing two excellent innings of 42 and 45 in 1911. Like his brother he went up to Cambridge after leaving Harrow, but though he scored 59 in the Freshmen's match of 1912, he never succeeded in getting his Blue. He was essentially a steady batsman.

WRIGHT, CAPTAIN AND BRIGADE MAJOR EGERTON LOWNES (Oxfordshire and Bucks. Light Infantry; General Staff Officer, Third Grade), born November 15th, 1885, killed May 11. E. L. Wright had quite a brilliant career as a cricketer, being four years in the Winchester and four years in the Oxford XI. In his first season for Winchester in 1901, being then a boy of sixteen, he played an innings of 113 against Eton, and came out second in the college batting with an average of 34. In 1902 he was by no means so successful, but in 1903 he averaged 24 and in 1904 he finished up splendidly with an average of 50, and with an innings of 53 not out had a big share in beating Eton by eight wickets. He was captain in his two last years. At Oxford he began well, heading the batting in 1905 with an average of 31 and scoring 95 and 26 against Cambridge at Lord's. The following year he was not quite so good, but he again came off at Lord's, playing a brilliant second innings of 79. In 1907 and again in 1908 he was captain of the XI. The side had a very bad season in 1907, only winning one match out of nine, but Wright himself with an average of 30 was second to G. N. Foster in batting. Against Cambridge he scored 4 and 48. He finished up badly as a batsman at Oxford in 1908, being lower in the batting list than in any of his previous seasons. Still he had the satisfaction of seeing Oxford beat Cambridge by two wickets, and had something to do with the victory, scoring 37 in the last innings. He was tried for the Lancashire XI, and apart from cricket won his Blue at Oxford for Association Football.
