Captain Roger Human, Adjutant Oxford and Bucks L.L, died on active service in November, aged 33. Very good in games at Repton, he gained cricket and Association football Blues at Cambridge. Captain of Repton in 1928, when he averaged 37.27 as a free batsman and took 32 wickets at 19.62 each with medium-paced bowling, he looked like becoming a great all-rounder, but failed to maintain this form. A late choice for Cambridge in 1930, he did little towards beating Oxford, who threw the match away by bad fielding and poor batting. Next year, when Oxford, winning by eight wickets, gained their first victory over Cambridge since 1923, Human again failed, and generally he proved disappointing in University cricket but always fielded well. At different times he played for Berkshire, Oxfordshire, and Worcestershire when a master at Bromsgrove School. Altogether in first-class cricket he was credited with 1,869 runs, average 24.92, and 48 wickets at 37.87 each.
