Profile

Born on April 18, 1883, in London. As a slow left-arm bowler he was in the Eton XI in 1901 and 1902. In his last year he took all 10 wickets for 22 in the first innings of Winchester and 16 for 46 in the match, when, bowling against the wind, he made the ball swerve and was almost unplayable. His 35 wickets for Eton in 1902 cost 11.62 runs each. At Oxford he was chosen for the Freshmen's match, but did not obtain his blue. He played three matches for Hampshire in 1913, taking only 3 wickets at 41.33. He also played for the Eton Ramblers and Free Foresters. He was Squire of Fonab, Perthshire. Serving as a Captain in the 3rd Battalion, Hampshire Regiment, he was killed in action at Zonnebeke, Belgium, on April 26, 1915, aged 32.
