Lieut.-Colonel Henry Longman, who died on October 7, aged 77, was the son of the late G. H. Longman. Like his father, H. K. Longman played for Eton and Cambridge. In the Eton XI of 1899 and the two following years, he enjoyed considerable success against Harrow and Winchester as a batsman specially skilled in strokes in front of the wicket. In 1899 he shared in an opening partnership of 167 against Harrow at Lord's with F. O. Grenfell, who won the Victoria Cross and was killed in the First World War. Longman gained his Blue as a Freshman at Cambridge, scoring 27 and 34 in the University match of 1901 and hitting 150 from the Yorkshire bowling at Fenner's. He then took a Commission in the Army and afterwards played occasionally for Surrey and Middlesex. During the 1914-18 war he won the D.S.O. and M.C. and rose to the rank of Major in the Gordon Highlanders.
