Leut-Gen. Montagu Brocas Burrows, CB, DSO, MC, the former Oxford and Army cricketer, died in hospital in London on January 17, aged 72. The sudden death of Brocas Burrows robs the world of a remarkable personality, and many people of varying ages and classes of society of a loyal friend and gay companion. Endowed with a fine physique, good looks, a fine intelligence and a wonderful joie de vivre, he used them all in a full enjoyment of a full and varied life which he communicated to those with whom he was working or playing. When Brocas was around there was never a dull moment. He was never happier than at home with his wife and family. His son, A. R. B., played for Eton in 1955-6-7.
