Profile

CAPT. ARTHUR MAITLAND BYNG, of the Royal Fusiliers, was killed in action in France in September. He was one of the best known batsmen in the Army, being very sound, with a free style and plenty of scoring strokes. At Portsmouth in July 1905 he made 204 for Hampshire, Hogs v. Royal Navy, and in partnership with D. A. Steele (180) scored 335 for the first wicket. He was born on September 26th, 1872, and in his two matches for Sandhurst v. Woolwich--in 1894 and 1895--scored 10 and 87 not out, and took eighteen wickets. In 1905 he played in three matches for Hampshire.
