LEGGE

Geoffrey Bevington

Lieutenant Commander (A), H.M.S. Vulture, Royal Naval Air Station, Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve (R.N.V.R). Died 21st November 1940 aged 37 years. Born 26 January 1903, Bromley, Kent. Son of Henry Bevington Legge and Edith Blythne Legge. Husband of Rosemary Kathleen Legge of Cranbrook, Kent. Played cricket for England, Kent, Oxford University; right-hand bat; legbreak bowler. Educated at Malvern School and Oxford University. Buried St Merryn Churchyard, Cornwall. Grave reference 1.

Geoffrey Legge as a cricketer, businessman, racing-car enthusiast and pioneer aviator, who became the first English Test player to die in the Second World War.

Extract from Wisden Cricketers' Almanack:

Lt. Geoffrey Bevington Legge, Fleet Air Arm, suffered death while flying in November, aged 37. Legge played little first-class cricket since 1930, when he resigned the Kent captaincy. After batting up to the high form associated with Malvern School, where he was captain, particularly in off-driving and cutting, Legge gained his Oxford Blue in 1925 and captained the University XI next season. Each year he headed the batting averages, and scored 83 in four innings, against Cambridge, the first of two good matches ending in a draw and Oxford losing the other by 34 runs. In this 1926 match R. G. H. Lowe did the fifth hat-trick, all by Cambridge bowlers, in the University match. In 1928 he succeeded A. J. Evans as Kent captain, and managed the side so well in the field that Lancashire, winners of the Championship, alone came out with a superior record. He went to South Africa in the winter of 1927, and also toured New Zealand and Australia when A. H. H. Gilligan captained the M.C.C. team in 1929. At Auckland in the specially arranged fourth Test Match, Legge excelled by making 196, the next highest score in a total of 540 being 75 by M. S. Nichols. Legge bowled slows with some success. Usually fielding in the slips, he seldom dropped any catch within reach, and in everything he attempted showed skill at the game. He was in the Malvern football eleven and also represented the School at rackets.
