BUCHANAN, JOHN NEVILLE, who died on October 31, aged 82, was in the Charterhouse XI as an allrounder from 1903 to 1905 and became captain. In his last season he headed the batting figures with an average of 54.57 and took 25 wickets for fewer than 20 runs apiece. He got his Blue as a Freshman at Cambridge in 1906 and also played against Oxford in the following three seasons, leading the side in 1909. His bowling at this time proved somewhat expensive, but he played a number of good innings. He also represented the University at tennis. Later he assisted Buckinghamshire as opening batsman from time to time.
