Born on November 14, 1878, at Winchester. Wisden failed to accord him an obituary, yet he was one of the most decorated of all cricketers, being awarded the DSO and bar and the MC and bar. He went to the Front at the beginning of the First World War as a CSM with the Royal Berkshire Regiment, attached to the Northamptonshire Regiment. When he was killed in action on May 29, 1918, near Ventalay, France, aged 39, he was a Major in command of a battalion. A left-arm medium slow bowler, he played in five games for Hampshire in 1911 and created a great impression on his debut when he took 9-92 in the match, but in his other four games he took just one more wicket.
