Colonel John Cabourn Hartley, who died on March 8, aged 88, played as a slow-medium bowler for Oxford University and England. In the Tonbridge XI of 1893, he gained a Blue at Oxford in 1896 and the following year. In the first match against Cambridge he bore a leading part in a victory by four wickets, scoring 43 and taking 11 wickets for 239. When dismissing eight men on the opening day for 161 runs, he bowled W. G. Grace, junior, son of the great Doctor, for the first of his two ducks in the match. Hartley went to America with Frank Mitchell's team in 1893 and, as a member of P. F. Warner's M.C.C. side in South Africa in 1905-06, took part without much success in two Test matches. He later played occasionally for Sussex. He served in the South African War and the First World War, being twice wounded and four times mentioned in dispatches.
