Profile

LEWIS, LIEUT.-COL. RICHARD PERCY (Manchester Regt.), born March 10, 1874 (according to the Winchester and Oxford Registers), died of wounds, September 9. Had previously been wounded. Winchester XI, 1891, 1892; Surrey XI, 1892: Middlesex XI, 1898; Oxford University XI, 1894-5-6. Went with Priestley's team to West Indies, 1897. Played much Military cricket, for Devon Regt., King's African Rifles, Egyptian Army, etc. Lewis seemed likely at one time to be a great wicket-keeper. At Winchester he was spoken of as a coming MacGregor, but it cannot be said that he quite fulfilled his early promise. His ability was beyond question, but his hands would not stand the hard work of first-class matches, and when they went wrong he had bad days. He had no pretensions as a batsman, and in the University match in 1894 he was very pleased that he managed to stay for a couple of overs, enabling Charles Fry to add seventeen runs and complete his hundred. Served in the South African War. Member of M.C.C. since 1893.
