At 11am today, the Club will join the nation in observing two minutes silence in remembrance of those service men and women who have died or been injured on active service.
In this the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War, we especially remember the members of Edgbaston and Priory Clubs who lost their lives in the Great War:
Captain Vincent Suckling and Captain Douglas Lunt recorded as having both died on 15th July 1915
Lieutenant Harold Bache, Holder of Edgbaston’s Deykin Cup who also played football for West Bromwich Albion and England, was killed in 1916
Lieutenant Frederick Alabaster who signed up in 1916 and died six months later of wounds received in battle
Neville Miller, Secretary of the Warwickshire Lawn Tennis Association, who was killed in action in June 1917
Together with the many other members reported as dead by the War Office and entered on the members’ register as killed.
We Will Remember Them
