Profile

HUDSON, Brig. REGINALD EUSTACE HAMILTON, DSO was perhaps the best Services batsman of the inter-war period. He averaged 40.15 in 27 first-class matches for the Army and the Europeans in India, scoring five first-class centuries, including 217 in 225 minutes for the Army against the RAF at The Oval in 1932, the second hundred coming in 70 minutes. Wisden described his form as brilliant. He scored 181 against the 1933 West Indians but was out for four when he and Bradman were opposing captains in the match against the Australians a year later. He won the DSO as commander of the 83rd Field Regiment, which he led from 1942 until VE Day. The new pavilion on the Royal Artillery ground at Woolwich is named after him.
