Hugh Dales, who died at Whitley Bay on May 4, aged 75, played as an amateur batsman for Middlesex from 1920 to 1930, frequently opening the innings. In all first-class cricket he scored 4,635 runs, average 26.63, his best season being that of 1923 when his aggregate reached 1,138, his average 29.17 and he registered the highest of his eight centuries--143 against Somerset at Taunton. Horace Dales, as he was generally known in cricket circles, was a member of the Hon. F. S. G. Calthorpe's M.C.C. team in the West Indies in 1925-26 and made one appearance for Gentlemen against Players, at the Oval in 1924. A left-handed batsman specially strong in defence and an occasional slow left-arm bowler, he assisted Durham from 1911 to 1913.
