IT is not without a feeling of regret, which will certainly be shared by all lovers
IT is not without a feeling of regret, which will certainly be shared by all lovers of England’s truly national pastime, that we have to record the passing of Henley Cricket Club. Founded in 1870, the club has enjoyed varying degrees of prosperity during the 45 years of its existence and its charming ground at Remenham Lane has been the scene of many interesting matches.
Mr and Mrs L Deane, of the Beeches, Hambleden, have five sons serving in His Majesty’s Forces, the latest to respond to the imperative call of duty being Mr E Deane, who has joined the Rifle Brigade. The other sons on active service are Lieutenants F and L W Deane, Union Defence Force, South Africa; Trooper J Deane, Life Guards, who gave up his position in Canada and at his own expense made the journey to England in order to enlist, and Mr Leslie Deane, Botha’s Army, South Africa.
Mr W Hiscock, late of Henley, a retired master gunner of the Royal Artillery, has been granted a warrant officer’s annuity as a reward for military service.
