Deaths in the war, 1916

2ND LIEUT. LIONEL PILKINGTON ABBOTT ( Leicestershire Regiment), who fell in action on July 14, aged 28, was not in the Eleven whilst at King's School, Canterbury, but played subsequently for Exeter College, Oxford.

LIEUT. CECIL HALLIDAY ABERCROMBIE, R.N., born in India on April 12, 1886, lost his life in the naval action off Jutland on May 31, whilst serving in H.M.S. Defence. He was a batsman with a delightfully free style who came to the fore in 1913 by making a series of good scores for Hampshire. On his first appearance for the County--against Oxford University at Southampton--he made 126 and 39, and subsequently obtained 144 v. Worcestershire at Dudley (where he and H. A. H. Smith (33*) added 118 for the tenth wicket) and 165 v. Essex at Leyton. His last-mentioned score was made in the second innings, when Hampshire followed-on 317 behind, and in partnership with Brown (140*) he put on 325 for the seventh wicket. In first-class matches that year he scored 936 runs with an average of 35.92. In 1914, being away on service, he was unable to assist the County, and therefore his fame rests on what he accomplished in a single season. It should, however, be added that in 1912, whilst playing at Lord's for Royal Navy v. Army, he scored 37 and 100. He had been a member of the M.C.C. since 1911, and had played Rugby football for Scotland.

2ND LIEUT. J. R. ADAM (Middlesex Regiment), who fell in action on August 18, was a member of the Eleven whilst at the County High School, Isleworth.

2ND LIEUT. GEOFFREY HENRY CADWALLADER ADAMS (Suffolk Regiment), born in 1896, fell in action on November 1. He was in the Radley Eleven in 1913 and two following seasons, being captain of the side in 1914 and 1915. In his last season, when he showed much improved form, he was second in the batting, scored 237 runs with an average of 47.40.

CAPT. ARTHUR ADDENBROOKE (Royal Warwickshire Regiment), who died of wounds on October 5, was in the Warwick School Eleven, and scored 34 in the Oxford Freshmen's match in 1902. He was captain of the Corpus Christi Eleven and played for the Authentics.

CAPT. GEORGE NEWDEGATE ALISON (Seaforth Highlanders), who was killed on July 1, aged 26, had made good scores for the Incogniti and his Battalion. He had previously been wounded twice.

LANCE-CORPL. CHARLES BRAMWELL ALLEN (Canterbury Co., New Zealand, I.B.D.), who was killed in the Battle of the Somme at the end of September, aged 30, was in the Eleven at the Royal Lancaster Grammar School for several years, and (before settling in New Zealand) played for the Lancaster C.C.

MR. GEORGE R. ALPEN, one of the best--known cricketers of Belgium, has been killed in the War, but no particulars are obtainable. He was an Australian by birth.

MAJOR PERCY ANTHONY (Welsh Regiment), who fell in action on July 10, aged 36, was in the Dulwich Eleven in 1895 and three following years. Later he played for Herefordshire frequently, and in 1900 headed the batting averages with 47.14. He had also appeared for Worcestershire 2nd XI and the Wanderers, of Johannesburg. He served in the South African War.

2ND LIEUT. HARRY ELSTON APPLEYARD (West Yorkshire Regiment), who fell in action of July 14, was in the Sedbergh Eleven in 1912 and 1913. In the latter year he was third in the batting averages and second in the bowling, making 238 runs with an average of 18.31 and taking forty-six wickets for 12.82 runs each.

REAR-ADMIRAL SIR ROBERT KEITH ARBUTHNOT, 4th Bart., C.B., M.V.O., K.C.B. (H.M.S. Defence), was born on March 23, 1864, and died in the battle of Jutland on May 31. He had been a member of the M.C.C. since 1898, and had played for the Club, United Services, and the Navy.

LIEUT. W. H. ARMITAGE (Yorkshire Regiment), who fell in action in May, aged 26, was educated at Wakefield Grammar School, where he was in the Eleven. He was awarded the Military Cross.

MAJOR JOHN N. F. ARMSTRONG (Royal Engineers), killed by shell explosion in the trenches on July 5, aged 38, played cricket for Sydney Grammar School and Sydney University.

2ND LIEUT. ALBAN CHARLES PHIDIAS ARNOLD (Royal Fusiliers), killed on July 7, aged 23, was a most promising cricketer, both as batsman and wicket-keeper. After being in the Eleven at Twyford School, near Winchester, he proceeded to Malvern and played for the College in 1909 and 1910; in the former season he was last in the averages with 11.25, but in the latter was first with 44.33. At Cambridge he took part in the Freshmen's match in 1912 and in the Seniors' in the following year, but did not receive his Blue until 1914. Against Oxford he scored only 22 and 0, which was somewhat disappointing as he had just previously made 89 on the same ground against M.C.C. For Hampshire he played several good innings that season, among them being 54 v. Kent and 69 v. Lancashire, both at Bournemouth, and 76 v. Somerset and 51 v. Warwickshire, both at Southampton. He would probably have developed into a cricketer of very high class.

LIEUT.-COL. WILLIAM CLAUDIUS CASSON ASH (Middlesex Regiment), who was born in 1870, died on September 29, aged 46, of wounds received on September 15. In addition to taking part in military cricket, he also played for Old Westminsters, Free Foresters, the Butterflies and Berkshire; had been a member of the M.C.C. since 1896, and had served on the Committee of the Middlesex County C.C. He was wounded in September, 1915, had been mentioned in Dispatches and received the D.S.O. He served in the South African War.

2ND LIEUT. SIDNEY THOMAS ASKHAM (Suffolk Regiment), born at Wellingborough on September 9, 1896, fell in action near Thiepval on August 21. For four years he was in the Wellingborough Grammar School Eleven, for which his all-round record was excellent. In his last season he headed the bowling, and was second to A. D. Denton in batting, making three hundreds--112, 108, and 149. In 1914 he was tried for Northamptonshire, scoring 83 runs with an average of 13.83 and taking two wickets for 43 runs each. His back play was very sound and he was an excellent filed.

LIEUT. LEWIS JOHN ROWLEY ATTERBURY (London Regiment), born at Hampstead on March 15, 1885, fell in action on October 7. He was associated with the Winnipeg C.C., and in 1914 was Treasurer of the Winnipeg Cricket Association. In 1910 he was a member of the North-Western team which visited Chicago.

LIEUT. HAROLD GODFREY BACHE (Lancashire Fusiliers), born at Churchill, in Worcestershire, on August 20, 1889, was killed at Ypres on February 15. He was in the Eleven at King Edward VI's Grammar School, Birmingham, but did not obtain his Blue at Cambridge as he did little when tried for the University. In the Freshmen's match of 1909 he made 137 and then retired, he and F. G. Turner (98) adding 263 for the fifth wicket, and in the following year he scored 117 in the Seniors' match. Subsequently he appeared for Worcestershire. He was a left-hand bat and a fair change bowler. At Association football he played for Cambridge University, West Bromwich Albion and the Corinthians, and also obtained his international cap. He also represented his University at lawn-tennis.

2ND LIEUT. LOVEL HARDWICK BARLOW (Liverpool Regiment), killed on August 14, was a member of the Merion C.C. of Philadelphia.

CAPT. FITZWILLIAM BARTELT (Somerset Light Infantry) died in hospital in Calcutta on September 12, aged 28. He was in the Bath College XI in 1903 and 1904.

CAPT. GUY WOLLASTON BARTHOLOMEW (King's Royal Rifle Corps), killed on August 25, aged 35, was not in the Eleven whilst at Marlborough, but played subsequently for Trinity College, Oxford.

CAPT. ROBERT NIGEL OLDFIELD BARTLETT (East Lancashire Regiment), born at Willersey, near Broadway, Worcestershire, died of wounds in April, aged 22. In 1911 and two following seasons he was in the King's School, Bruton, Eleven, being captain in 1912 and 1913. In 1912, when he obtained three hundreds (including 207 not out v. Wells Theological College), he scored 802 runs with an average of 100.25, and in his last year made 346 runs with an average of 57.66. It is certainly curious that, although he should have done so well in 1912, he should not have headed the averages, C. C. C. Case beating him with 127.00.

SERGEANT SAMUEL HAROLD BATES (Royal Warwickshire Regiment), born at the Warwickshire County Cricket Ground, where his father was groundsman, was killed in action on August 28, aged about 24. He was a useful all-round player, being a left-handed bowler and right-handed bat, and had played occasionally for his County. He was a member of the ground-staff at Lord's.

2ND LIEUT. LEONARD HENRY BATSON (East Kent Regiment), who fell in action on July 3, aged 24, was in the Keble College, Oxford, second eleven.

LIEUT. CYRIL WYNYARD BATTYE (Royal Berkshire Regiment and Royal Flying Corps) was killed whilst flying on March 13, aged 21. He had been severely wounded at Ypres in October, 1914, and again, in the trenches, in August, 1915. In 1912 he scored 63 runs for Repton with an average of 15.75, in 1914 was a member of the Sandhurst Eleven, making 7 and 11 not out v. Woolwich, and played occasionally for Berkshire.

He was in the Rugby Eleven in 1907, when he took twenty-three wickets for 13.30 runs each, heading the averages. Subsequently he played for the Burrard C.C. and the Public School team of Vancouver, where he was regarded as one of the best batsmen in British Columbia. He was wounded at Hooge in August, 1915.

MAJOR F. BECKET (King's Liverpool Regiment), who died of wounds in October, was Captain of the Southport and Birkdale C.C.

2ND LIEUT. VICTOR LEOPOLD STEVENS BEDWELL (Suffolk Regiment), who was killed on August 18, aged 22, was educated at St. John's School, Leatherhead, where he was in the Eleven in 1912 and 1913. In the former year he was fourth in the batting averages with 15.21 and in the latter first with 28.30.

2ND LIEUT. HARRY LAWRENCE BENSON (Northumberland Fusiliers), killed on April 11, aged 26, was well-known as a cricketer in the Newcastle district. He was not in the Eleven whilst at Charterhouse. In November, 1915, he had been wounded.

CAPT. WILLIAM RICHARD BENTON (Manchester Regiment), who died of wounds on August 17, played for Middlesex twice in 1913, but was best known owing to his association with the Mote Park C.C. He served throughout the South African War, and in 1915 was wounded and invalided home. Before the present War he was curate-in-charge of Bearsted, in Kent. He was in the Eleven whilst at Framlingham College.

CAPT. CARADOC DAVIES BERRINGTON (R.F.A.), killed on March 10, aged 30, was in the Wellington Eleven in 1904, when he played an innings of 40 and took three wickets in the match with Charterhouse.

2ND LIEUT. FRANK R. BEST (Loyal North Lancashires, Preston Territorials) was killed in France on January 2, aged 21. He was not in the Eleven whilst at Malvern, but was well-known as a member of the Preston C.C., of Lancashire. His father, Mr. W. F. Best, played a few times for Kent between 1890 and 1892.

LIEUT.-COL. HUMPHREY FRANCIS WILLIAM BIRCHAM, D.S.O., was born in March, 1875, and killed in action on July 23, aged 41. He was in the Eton Eleven in 1892 and 1893, in the latter year making 164 runs with an average of 18.22. In his three Public School matches--he did not play v. Winchester in 1892--he did little, scoring only 27 runs in four innings. It was said of him: Hits hard, and when set is very dangerous. In 1894 he was elected a member of the M.C.C., and a year later helped Sandhurst to beat Woolwich by an innings and 195 runs. Subsequently he played much military cricket, especially for the Greenjackets, Royal Marines and United Services. He was wounded in April, 1915, and had twice been mentioned in dispatches.

2ND LIEUT. KEITH FORD BISHOP (R.G.A.), killed in France on August 8, aged 19, was educated at the United Services College, Windsor, which he represented at both cricket and football.

2ND LIEUT. MAJOR WILLIAM BOOTH (West Yorkshire Regiment), born at Pudsey on December 10, 1886, fell in action in July. His earliest cricket was played at Fulneck School, and later he was associated with Pudsey St. Lawrence and the Wath Athletic Club, which played in the Mexborough League, and of which he was captain. He appeared regularly for Yorkshire 2nd XI in 1907 and two following seasons, and in 1908 received his first trial for the County. He did not, however, secure a regular place in the team until two years later, but in 1911 he scored 1,125 runs for his county and took seventy-four wickets, with a highest innings of 210 against Worcestershire on the Worcester ground. He increased his reputation as a bowler in the following summer, and in 1913 made over a thousand runs and took 158 wickets of Yorkshire, his aggregate of 181 wickets in first-class matches being the highest of any bowler that season. In 1914 he was not so successful in batting, but he obtained 141 wickets for Yorkshire at a cost of 18 runs apiece. Although a fine punishing batsman, Booth's claim to fame will rest chiefly upon what he accomplished as a bowler. Possessed of a free, natural action, he made the ball come quickly off the pitch. On occasion his off-break was quite formidable, but his strong points were swerve and pace off the ground. In two consecutive matches in August, 1914, he and Drake bowled unchanged throughout, Gloucestershire being dismissed for 94 and 84 at Bristol and Somerset for 44 and 90 at Weston-super-Mare. In the second innings of the latter match Booth had the very rare experience of bowling throughout without obtaining a wicket, Drake taking all 10 for 35 runs.

In 1913 Booth was chosen for the Players at Lord's, and during 1913-14 toured South Africa with the M.C.C.'s team under Douglas' captaincy. His doings abroad were somewhat disappointing, and so strong was the side that he was left out of three of the Test matches. In the 144 games in which he appeared for Yorkshire he scored 4,213 runs with an average of 22.65 and obtained 556 wickets for 18.89 runs each. Tall of stature, good-looking, and of engaging address, Booth was a very popular figure both on and off the cricket field.

CAPT. WILLIAM GERALD KNOX BOSWELL (Rifle Brigade), born on June 24, 1892, died of wounds on July 28. In 1910 and 1911 he was in the Eton Eleven, and in his four Public School matches scored 95 runs with an average of 23.75 and took nine wickets for just under 9 runs each. In two of these games--v. Harrow in 1910, and v. Winchester in 1911-- Eton followed-on and won. At Oxford in 1912, after scoring 75 and 20 and obtaining fours wickets of 47 runs in the Freshmen's match, he was tried in the Eleven, but he did not secure his Blue until 1913. In his two matches against Cambridge he made 93 runs in four innings and took a couple of wickets. In 1913, when he scored 101 not out against Hampshire at Southampton, he headed the University averages with 36.53, but in 1914 was fourth with 26.00. He had been mentioned in Dispatches.

2ND LIEUT. GUY BRACHER ( The Buffs), who was killed on July 3, was associated with the Mote C.C.

2ND LIEUT. DENNIS J. F. BRADBURY (King's Own Royal Lancaster Regiment) died of wounds in November, aged 19. In 1915 he headed the batting and bowling averaged of the Moravian School, Leeds. He was associated with the Wigan C.C.

LIEUT. ALFRED ROYAL BRADFORD (Cambridgeshire Regiment), killed on October 14, aged 22, was in the Bedford Grammar School Eleven in 1911 and 1912. In the latter year he was third in the averages with 23.75.

LIEUT.-COL. HAROLD ERNEST BRASSEY (Household Cavalry, attached to South Lancashire Regiment) was born on March 29, 1877, and was killed on July 16. He played for Household Brigade, Windsor Garrison, and other military teams, and was a very well-known poloist. He was son of the late Mr. H. A. Brassey, whose cricket festivals at Preston Hall, in Kent, about 40 years ago were such delightful functions.

SAPPER BRETT, who died of wounds in June, had the reputation of being the best wicket-keeper in the Metropolitan Police Force. He gained the D.C.M.

LIEUT. ALFRED EVANS BROAD (Dorset Regiment) died of wounds at Le Touquet on March 2, aged 27. He was in the Uppingham Eleven in 1906 and 1907, being a useful all-round performer. Against Repton in 1906 he played an innings of 43.

CAPT. ROY E. BULLEN (King's Royal Rifles), who was born at Durban (Natal) on June 21, 1892, died of wounds on April 29. In 1909 and two following years he was in the Leys School XI, and in 1910 and 1911, in both of which seasons he was captain, headed the batting averages, his figures for the respective years being 28.00 and 31.21. In 1911, when he also obtained fifty-one wickets for 13.64 runs each, he scored most runs, took most wickets and headed both sets of averages. At Cambridge he played for Jesus College, but did not receive his Blue. He represented the University at lacrosse.

2ND LIEUT. HOWARD CHURCHILL BURBIDGE (East Yorkshire Regiment), who died of wounds on September 13, was not in the Eleven whilst at Oundle, but subsequently played with success for Brough, in the East Riding.

CAPT. HUGH HENRY BURN (Coldstream Guards), born in November, 1895, died of wounds on September 16. In 1913 he was in the Winchester Eleven, making 339 runs with an average of 24.07 and taking four wickets for 32.25 runs each. Against Eton he scored 22 and 29. He was a powerful driver and bowled uncertain googlies. He was awarded the Military Cross.

2ND LIEUT. WILLIAM BEAUMONT BURNS (Worcestershire Regiment), born at Rugeley, Staffordshire, on August 29, 1883, fell in action on July 7. Educated at the King's School, Ely, where he was in the Eleven, he played subsequently for Staffordshire and Worcestershire. On his first appearance for the former county--v. M. C. C. and Ground at Lichfield--he played an innings of 123 not out, and in the next year headed the averages with 57.20, his highest score being 123 v. Oxfordshire. In 1903 he began to assist Worcestershire, his appearances that season, however, being restricted to the three games played by the County outside the Championship competition as he had not yet completed his qualification. His association with Worcestershire, of course, gave him many opportunities of appearing in the best company, and in 1906, 1908, 1909, 1910, and 1911 he scored over a thousand runs in first-class cricket. His largest aggregate was 1,438 in 1911, when he averaged 31.95. In making his 196 he put on 393 runs for the fifth wicket with Arnold (200*).

On the Worcester ground in July, 1908, he scored 334 in four and a-half hours for Gentlemen of Worcestershire v. Gentlemen of Staffordshire.

He assisted the Gentlemen against the Players at the Oval and Scarborough in 1910, and at Lord's in 1911, in the Oval match scoring 16 and 34 and taking seven wickets--three of them in four--balls for 58 runs. In 1906-7 he visited New Zealand as a member of the M.C.C.'s team, and during the tour rendered good service without doing anything remarkable. At the conclusion of the season of 1913 he settled in Canada, and was seen no more in first-class cricket in this country. He may be summed-up as a dashing, hard-hitting batsman, a useful fast bowler, and a brilliant field. His most successful years as a bowler were 1909 and 1910, when his figures were respectively forty-four wickets for 25.95 runs each and fifty-eight for 26.77 apiece. He could bowl at a great pace, but the fairness of his delivery was often questioned--and not without good reason. He had been a member of the M.C.C. since 1911.

LIEUT. W. J. BURT (Middlesex Regiment), who was killed in August, represented Felsted at cricket, boxing, and football. He was in the Eleven in 1912, when he made 103 runs with an average of 12.87 and took fifteen wickets for 15.50 runs each.

2ND LIEUT. FRANCIS BLAKE CAMERON (Cameron Highlanders), who died of wounds on August 19, aged 19, was in the Rossall Eleven in 1912 and 1913, and was a fair all-round player.

2ND LIEUT. LENNARD ARTHUR CAREY (Devon Regiment), born at Finchley on December 3, 1891, fell in action on July 1, aged 24. A good wicket-keeper and useful batsman, he played for Christ College (Finchley), the Finchley C.C., and--in 1911, 1912, and 1913--the King's County C.C., of Brooklyn. He had been wounded in September, 1915.

LIEUT. WILLIAM VINCENT CAREY (Canadian Expeditionary Force), born on August 1, 1886, was killed on September 30. He was in the Eleven at Trinity College School, Port Hope, in 1902.

2ND LIEUT. GEORGE THOMAS CARTER (Norfolk Regiment attached to the Black Watch), born July 10, 1896, was killed in Mesopotamia on March 10. In 1911 and three following years he was in the Wellingborough Grammar School Eleven, in his last season heading the batting averages with 87.00. Among his many good performances that year were innings of 200 not out v. Bedford Modern School and 112 v. Lord Lilford's XI, which included King and Alec Hearne. In addition he was a useful change bowler, and all fours seasons won the Cup for fielding. For four years he was in the football eleven; he also held the School record (21ft. 4in.) for the long jump, and had thrown the cricket ball 127 yards 2ft. He was regarded as the best all-round athlete Wellingborough ever had. In 1913 and 1914 he assisted Norfolk, and in the latter year had a batting average of 32.33 for the County.

During the season he obtained six wickets for Harrow at a cost of 25.67 runs each, and made 16 runs with an average of 2.66.

LIEUT. HARRY BRODRICK CHINNERY (King's Royal Rifles), born at Teddington, February 6, 1876, fell in action on May 28. A stylish batsman and smart field, he was in the Eton Eleven in 1894 and 1895, in the latter year heading the averages with 45.14. In his four Public School matches--against Harrow and Winchester--he scored 182 runs in six innings, his great triumph being to make 75 and 64 v. Harrow in 1895, in the second innings of which game he and A. B. Lubbock (66) obtained 115 for the first wicket.

His first four innings in inter-Provincial cricket were 30 and 39 v. Wellington at Wellington and 52 and 33 in the return match at Christchurch. He was then only 17 years of age, and his form that season was so good that to February 17 he had made 1,466 runs with an average of 81.44. In 1912-13 he scored 77 v. Otago at Christchurch; in 1913-14 he toured Australia as a member of the New Zealand team; and during 1914-15 he made 63 and 56 v. Auckland at Auckland and 109 v. Hawke's Bay at Hastings, besides taking four wickets for 5 runs against Otago at Christchurch. In club cricket he played for the St. Alban's C.C., of Christchurch.

Harrow and Winchester scored 67 runs in five innings, and took thirteen wickets for 17.92 runs each. It was said of him in 1899: Bowls straight and fast, and has often been most useful. A powerful hitter, and with better defence would be a dangerous batsman. Works hard in the field, and has done some brilliant things. At Cambridge he played for the Freshmen in 1900 and for the Seniors and a few times for the University in 1901 and 1902--in 1901 he took six wickets for 23 runs v. Mr. A. J. Webbe's XI--but did not obtain his Blue until 1903. On his only appearance against Oxford, when Cambridge lost by 268 runs, he made 11 and 0 not out and his one wicket cost 86 runs.

LIEUT K. L. HUTCHINGS (King's Liverpool Regiment, attached to Welsh Regiment) was killed in action during the first week in September. He was struck by a shell, death being instantaneous. Of all the cricketers who have fallen in the War he may fairly be described as the most famous.

Kenneth Lotherington Hutchings did not fulfil all the hopes formed of him, but at his best he was one of the most remarkable batsmen seen in this generation. Those who follow cricket will not need to be reminded of the sensation caused by his play in 1906--the year in which Kent, for the first time in modern days, came out as Champion County. To the triumph of the side no one contributed more than Hutchings. It is true that he fell a little below C. J. Burnup in the averages, but he played with amazing brilliancy, getting four 100's in county matches, and scoring 1,358 runs. His success astonished the public, but it was scarcely a surprise to those who had watched him from his school days. He had a great career at Tonbridge, being in the eleven for five years, and heading the batting for three seasons in succession. The first evidence of his ability in county cricket was given when, in 1903, he scored 106 for Kent against Somerset at Taunton. His batting in 1906 took him at once to the top of the tree, and on all hands he was regarded as an England cricketer. Unfortunately he never again reached quite the level of his great season. From time to time he did brilliant things, playing especially well in 1909 and 1910, but in 1912 he lost his form and dropped out of the Kent eleven.

In 1909 he was chosen twice for England against Australia, scoring nine at Manchester and 59 at the Oval. He paid one visit to Australia, being a member of the M.C.C.'s team in the winter of 1907-8. Taking the tour as a whole, he did not meet with the success expected, but at Melbourne, in the only Test match the Englishmen won, he played a very fine innings of 126. Hutchings was quite individual in his style of batting, recalling no predecessor. His driving power was tremendous, and when at his best he could score from good length balls wih wonderful facility. It was said in 1906 that when he played for Kent against Yorkshire, even George Hirst--most fearless of fieldsmen at mid-off--went back several yards for him, so terrific being the force of his hitting. Like most modern batsmen, Hutchings trusted for defence wholly to his back play. When he went forward it was always for the purpose of scoring. Playing the daring game that he did, he could only do himself full justice when physically very fit. His fielding was on a par with his batting. In the slips or in the deep field he was equally brilliant. He was born at Southborough, near Tunbridge Wells, on December 7, 1882.--S.H.P.

2ND LIEUT. ROLAND GEORGE INGLE (Lincolnshire Regiment), killed on July 1, had captained the Eleven at King's School, Ely.

At Oxford he played in the University College Eleven, but did not obtain his Blue. Since 1905 he had been a member of the M.C.C.

He was captain of Worcester St. John's C.C., and in club matches obtained almost a hundred centuries. Since 1907 he had been a member of the M.C.C.

In 1912 he was not so successful, and in his two matches against Haileybury at Lord's he made only 23 runs in four innings, once not out. In the first innings of the 1911 game he took five wickets for 79 runs.

PERCY JEEVES (Royal Warwickshire Regiment) was killed on July 22, England losing a cricketer of whom very high hopes had been entertained. Jeeves was born at Earlsheaton, in Yorkshire, on the 5th of March, 1888. He played his first serious cricket for the Goole C.C., and became a professional at Hawes. He took part in Yorkshire trial matches in 1910, but presumably failed to attract much attention. Soon afterwards he went to live in Warwickshire, playing for that county, when not fully qualified, against the Australians and South Africans in 1912. No special success rewarded him in those matches, but in 1913 he did brilliant work for Warwickshire, both as bowler and batsman, and firmly established his position. He took 106 wickets in first-class matches that season at a cost of 20.88 each, and scored 765 runs with an average of 20.13. In 1914 he held his own as a bowler, taking ninety wickets in first-class matches, but in batting he was less successful than before. He was chosen for Players against Gentlemen at the Oval, and by his fine bowling helped the Players to win the match, sending down in the Gentlemen's second innings 15 overs for 44 runs and four wickets. Mr. P. F. Warner was greatly impressed and predicated that Jeeves would be an England bowler in the near future. Within a month War had been declared. Jeeves was a right-handed bowler on the quick side of medium pace, and with an easy action came off the ground with plenty of spin. He was very popular among his brother players.
