LIEUT. THE HON. ARCHER WINDSOR-CLIVE, second son of Lord Plymouth, died on September 1 of wounds received at Mons whilst serving with the 3rd Batt. Coldstream Guards. He was born at Hewell Grange, Worcestershire, on November 6, 1890, and was in the Eton XI in 1908 and 1909. In the former season he scored 10 and 38 v. Harrow, and 105--a sound innings--v. Winchester; in the latter, 14 and 1 v. Harrow, and 44 v. Winchester. Proceeding to Cambridge he scored 12 and took seven wickets for 49 runs in the Freshmen's match in 1910, but did not obtain his blue. He was a good batsman and a useful medium-paced left-handed bowler. In 1908 his name will be found in the Glamorganshire eleven.
