Of these, a small number are unidentified and one grave, destroyed by shell fire, is represented by a special memorial.

Extract from the Stock Exchange Memorial Book:

LIEUTENANT HARRY BRODRICK CHINNERY, King's Royal Rifle Corps, second son of the late W. M. Chinnery of Hatchford Park, Cobham, Surrey, was born in 1876 and educated at Eton.

His name was long famous in the cricketing world. He played for Eton against Harrow in 1894 and 1895, and was afterwards a regular member first of the Surrey and then of the Middlesex Eleven. He became a member of the Stock Exchange in 1898, and a partner in his late father's firm, Chinnery Bros.

As soon as war broke out he offered his services to the War Office and was given a commission in the r3th (Service) Battalion of the 60th (King's Royal Rifles).

He was killed in France on 28 May 1916, in circumstances that are thus described by his Company Commander: "He was in the middle of his men, encouraging them in a moment of danger. He was killed by the last shell fired at a night working party which was advancing our line nearer to the enemy. It was a trying night, and he did splendidly all the earlier part of it in keeping them at their work and keeping up their spirits."

His Colonel wrote: "He will be greatly missed by his brother-officers and the men of his Company, while by his death the Battalion has lost a valuable officer whom it would be difficult to replace."

Lieut. Chinnery's popularity with his men may be judged by the following extracts from a letter written by a rifleman "on behalf of the fellows in his Platoon and myself":

"Mr. Chinnery was loved and respected by all of us that he came in contact with. While in charge of the Machine Gun Section in England, and last Autumn out here, he was looked upon as something more than a good officer and a perfect gentleman; and although he had only been with No. 6 Platoon six weeks, yet no Officer was more respected and had their complete confidence.

"Many are the stories told by his men of his splendid courage and coolness on Sunday night (the night of his death); always first in his area to go to a wounded man, to assist and cheer with a kindly word."

His profile from Cricinfo - Wisden Cricketers' Almanack

Lieutenant Harry Chinnery was stylish batsman and useful fielder who was in the Eton XI in 1894 and 1895, topping the averages in his final season. In the annual match against Harrow he scored 75 and 64. In 1897 he played regularly for Surrey, scoring 761 runs including 149 against Warwickshire. He was admitted to the Stock Exchange in 1898 and so only played a handful of representative matches in 1898 and then between 1899 and 1902 he appeared irregularly for Middlesex. In 1901 he opened the season with 105 and 165* for MCC against Oxford University and later made 100 for Middlesex against Gloucestershire. In 1904 he was back at Surrey for his final Championship matches. He carried on playing first-class cricket until 1910, mainly for the Gentlemen of England. Wisden noted that his "early retirement was much to be regretted, but he continued to assist the Eton Ramblers and I Zingari". He was killed while serving with the King's Royal Rifles in France. He was a son of Walter Chinnery, a champion mile runner in the early days of amateur athletics.

Extract from Illustrated Sporting and Dramatic News - Saturday 20 February 1915, page 6:

CAPT. B. H. HOLLOWAY, Royal Sussex Regt., is the well-known Old Leysian and Cambridge double Blue. He might with very little luck have been a triple Blue, for he has played with success for Sussex. He received his Blue at Rugby football at half-back, and has represented Cambridge several times at lacrosse. For some years he has played for the Old Leysians, of which club he has been both captain and hon. sec., and for the Surrey fifteen as a stand-off half-back. On the outbreak of war he was appointed Second Lieutenant in the Royal Sussex Regt., and was very soon promoted to a Captaincy. His many friends will wish him the best of luck "across the water."

NOTES BY "RANGER,"

Information is, we regret, to hand this week that Lieut. John Howell has been killed in action. He was the younger son of the late Mr. Rex Howell, who was a very well-known member of the Surrey County Cricket Club. The elder son, Lieut. Miles Howell, the Oxford cricket and Association Blue, was wounded early in the summer, and is back home again this week wounded for the second time. John Howell was captain of Repton in 1914, and was for four years in the school XI., its crack bats man during his last two seasons. He was a better bats man than his brother, and was also an excellent Association football player. For him cricket and football honours at Oxford, where he was going last autumn, were merely a matter of health and immunity from injury. Thus cut short on the very threshold of his career —he cannot have been more than eighteen —the news of John Howell's death will be received in Surrey cricket circles with deep grief. A great career in the cricket field he was predestined to occupy, as he showed when the first time he met Barnes, the England and Staffs, bowler, he scored 44 for Surrey 2nd XI. (when barely seventeen years of age) in the Minor Counties Championship.

HUNT Frank Lewis

In the 1911 census he was aged 31, born Camberwell, London, an Architect, married to Helene Hunt, resident with his brother, Edwin Paine Hunt, at 34, Half Moon Lane, Camberwell S.E., London & Surrey.

See his statistics on CricInfo and extract from Wisden Cricketers' Almanack

Details with regard to the death of Mr. Hunt have never been published. Place and date are unknown, but his friends have long given up hope that he is sill alive. Mr. Hunt was a very good all-round cricketer and so full of enthusiasm for the game that he was more valuable on a side than many players of greater natural gifts. He was a very plucky punishing bat, a useful change bowler - right hand fast - and a brilliant fieldsman wherever he was placed. He played his first match for Middlesex in 1902--a disastrous year for the county--making his first appearance in the Whit-Monday fixture against Somerset. After an interval of over 15 years one recalls his undisguised delight when on being tried as second change, he took a wicket with the first ball he bowled. In his second innings he hit up 60, but in his four subsequent matches for Middlesex in 1902 he did next to nothing with either bat or ball. In 1903, however, when Middlesex won the County Championship he proved his worth as a batsman, getting an average of 27 with 57 as his highest score. It cannot be said that during his connection with Middlesex he improved as a batsman on his early efforts, but he headed the bowling in 1908, taking thirteen wickets in five matches with an average of 19 runs a wicket. His highest innings in first-class cricket was 128 in the Gentlemen v. Players Match at the Oval in 1904--the very unsatisfactory match in which two changes were made in the Gentlemen's team after the first day.

LEWIS, LIEUT.-COL. RICHARD PERCY (Manchester Regt.), born March 10, 1874 (according to the Winchester and Oxford Registers), died of wounds, September 9. Had previously been wounded.

Played much Military cricket, for Devon Regt., King's African Rifles, Egyptian Army, etc. Lewis seemed likely at one time to be a great wicket-keeper. At Winchester he was spoken of as a coming MacGregor, but it cannot be said that he quite fulfilled his early promise. His ability was beyond question, but his hands would not stand the hard work of first-class matches, and when they went wrong he had bad days. He had no pretensions as a batsman, and in the University match in 1894 he was very pleased that he managed to stay for a couple of overs, enabling Charles Fry to add seventeen runs and complete his hundred. Served in the South African War. Member of M.C.C. since 1893.

RAPHAEL, JOHN EDWARD, Lieut., A.D.C. and Camp Commandant, 41st Division. only s. of the late Albert Raphael, of Wild Hatch, Hendon; b. Brussels, 30 April, 1882; educ. Streatham School, and Merchant Taylors', and at St. John's College. Oxford: was a Barrister; gazetted 2nd Lieut. 9th (Service) Battn. The Duke of Wellington's (West Riding Regt.) Sept. 1914: subsequently transferred to the 18th (Service) Battn. The King's Royal Rifle Corps, raised by his cousin, Sir Herbert Raphael; promoted Lieut. Dec. 1914; served with the Expeditionary Force in France and Flanders from May, 1916; appointed A.D.C. to Major-General Sir Sydney Lawford, K.C.B., 41st Division, in Oct. 1915, and died at No. 10 Casualty Clearing Station 11 June, 1917, from wounds received in action at Messina on the 7th of that month. Buried in the Military Cemetery, Lljssenthoek, near Poperinghe. A Staff Officer, who was with him when wounded, wrote: “I have seen many men in many parts of the world under all sorts of conditions, but never in my experience have I been so impressed by such a magnificent display of sheer pluck and unselfishness. During the three days he lived he was bright and cheerful, never talked about himself, but was very concerned about his servant. his groom, his horses, and everything but himself.” In 1909 he contested the Croydon Division in the Liberal interest, but without success, although his charm and characteristic straightforwardness won the admiration of his mast decided opponents. Lieut. Raphael achieved a high reputation as a cricketer and a Rugby Union International three-quarter buck. He was captain of the Merchant Taylors' Cricket XL, establishing a public school record for the runs he made. At Oxford he played in the University XI and Rugby XV from 1903-6. In 1904 he accomplished his best performance with the bat against the Yorkshire XI. at Oxford, scoring 201 out of a total of 374. He was a member of the Surrey County Xl. for four seasons, commencing in 1903, and in 1904 acted as captain. Lieut. Raphael's last cricket appearance in Yorkshire was for an England XI against the county at Harrogate in Aug. 1913, when he and Mr. H. D. G. Leveson-Gower saved the Englanders from defeat by a plucky stand in the last half-hour of the match. Between 1902 and 1906 Lieut. Raphael played in nine international matches for England as a Rugby centre three-quarter back, distinguishing himself by powerful running. He also captained in 1910 an English team on a visit to the Argentine. Besides cricket and football, John Raphael was an expert fencer and swimmer, being president of the Oxford University Swimming Club in 1904. Under his leadership the Old Merchant Taylors' Football Club became one of the most renowned sides in the country. It was often said of him that he was the most versatile and one of the best sportsmen who have come down from Oxford in the present century. He found, however, his vocation in the Army, where his gift for dealing with men came into play. All his energies were given to promoting their sports, organizing canteens, seeing to the catering and cooking for his units; the men wrote of him: "He was to us as a father." He was very often to be found in the front-line trenches, where his cheery presence heartened the men; it was thus he got his death wound. A rising young politician, a writer for the Press, a traveller, sportsman and soldier, one of the most chivalrous and devoted of sons, an ardent worker for social reform, a loyal friend, of him it may be said: "If character be destiny, then is his assured."

Details from Wisden Cricketers' Almanack

Lieut John Edward Raphael (King's Royal Rifles and A.D.C. to the G.O.C. of a Division), born at Brussels April 30, 1882; died of wounds June 11. Merchant Taylors, 1898, etc.: captain two years; Oxford v Cambridge 1903-4-5. Surrey XI, 1903, etc., and captain for a time in 1904. Member of M.C.C., since 1906.

The news that John Raphael was dead caused sorrow to a very wide circle of friends. Though he never gained quite the place as a batsman that his deeds as a school-boy had suggested, he was in the cricket field and still more in the world of Rugby football a distinct personality. Everything he did created more than ordinary interest, his popularity as a man, apart from his ability, counting for much. At Merchant Taylors he had a brilliant record. He was in the eleven for five years-- 1897 to 1901. In 1898 as a boy of sixteen he headed the batting with an average of 23 and, being quite a good school bowler, took 32 wickets at a cost of less than nine runs each. Thenceforward his school career was one long success. He was third in batting in 1899 - average 27 - and first in bowling with 51 wickets for just under 15 runs each. Then in 1900 he had a great season. At the top of the list both in batting and bowling he scored 962 runs with an average of 43, and took 68 wickets. His highest innings was 152 not out. He finished up at school in 1901 with nothing short of a triumph. Again first in batting he scored 1,397 runs with an average of 69, and as a bowler he was second, 76 wickets falling to him. He and J. Dennis made 326 together without being parted against Kennington Park, their scores being 175 not out and 135 not out respectively. Naturally great things were expected of Raphael when he went up to Oxford, but as a cricketer he began with a set-back. From some cause, after making 47 not out in the Freshmen's match, in 1902, he showed such poor form that he never had any chance of gaining his blue. As a matter of fact he was not tried in a single first-class match. In 1903 his prospects while Oxford played at home were equally dismal. However he got on well for Surrey against Oxford at the Oval, and was given a trial for the University against Sussex at Brighton. Seizing his opportunity he played a fine innings of 65, when no one else could do much against the Sussex bowlers, and two days before the match with Cambridge at Lord's Mr. Findlay gave him his colours. As in the case of Lord George Scott for Oxford and late Eustace Crawley for Cambridge in 1887, the last choice proved the batting success of his side. Raphael scored 130 on the first day and laid the foundation of Oxford's victory. His innings did not start well, but it was brilliant in its later stages. In the drawnmatchof 1904 Raphael only made 12 and 25 against Cambridge, but in the sensational match the following year--won in brilliant style by Cambridge after it had at one point seemed any odds against them--he played perhaps the best innings of his life. With a score of 99 he only failed by a single run to rival Yardley's feat of getting two hundreds in the University match. In Surrey cricket Raphael never became a power, but he often played well for the county and when--as the last of various captains--he took charge of the team in 1904 he proved quite a capable leader. Raphael's weakness as a batsman was that he relied too exclusively upon forward play. His method - at any rate when he had to contend against first-rate bowling - demanded an easy wicket. His bowling seemed to leave him after his school days.

At the game of Rugby football Raphael earned much distinction as a three-quarter back, playing for England in nine matches - against Scotland and against Wales in 1902, 1905, and 1906; against Ireland in 1902; and against New Zealand and France in 1906. A beautiful kick, a brilliant field, and possessed of a good turn of speed, he was a fine natural player, even if his special qualities did not always make for success as one of a line of four three-quarters in international encounters. He accomplished great things for the Old Merchant Taylors, and gaining his blue as a Freshman at Oxford in 1901, not only appeared for his University against Cambridge on four occasions, but only once failed to secure a try.

In a bye-election at Croydon he stood as Liberal candidate but did not succeed in entering Parliament.

Court of Inquiry. 22780/1918. Lieut. A.N.Thorne, 2/Lt. H. Watson and 2/Lt.M.J. Levine.

The cause of the acc was in our opinion due (whilst the pilots were on duty) to inexperience on the part of 2/Lt. Levine in that he failed to turn his machine to the right when the leader Lt.Thorne did so and that Lt.Thorne probably lost distance fron the formation in carrying out two succesive banks thereby causing the two machines to collide.
