Three young officers of the Worcestershire Regiment were killed in action last week – lieutenants H.J. Graham Gilmour, C.C. Harrison and C.

Henry. Lieut. Gilmour was 31 years of age and the son by her first marriage of Mrs Price Hughes of Red Hill, Worcester. He was very well known in Worcester and the county and was a keen lover of cricket playing for the Worcester Gents and the St John’s Cricket Club, sometimes on the County Ground.

He was also a good hockey player and horseman, riding at Point-to- Point steeplechases. He had been in the Worcestershire Regiment since 1901, serving in Burma and the South African War. (There is a memorial window to him in Worcester Cathedral).

Three excellent concerts were held this week in the YMCA Tent at Norton Barracks and were greatly enjoyed by the crowded audiences of men.

The performers included the Brine Baths Orchestra from Droitwich and Mr G.W Aram’s Party from St Peter’s. On Sunday the usual Church Parade was held at the Barracks and the officers and men formed in a square outside the YMCA Tent where the Rev R.B.

Roberts gave a vigorous address.

M.K. Foster, the Worcestershire county cricketer, has been appointed a 2nd Lieutenant in the Public School Special Corps at Epsom which is intended only for those waiting on commissions in the Army.
