Biographical information

Biographical information

Contribute ›
  • Brother of Mr W.B. Cave, of College Street, Wanganui.

    "Came out to New Zealand from England in 1886, and was at School here from 1891 1894. On leaving, he started farming in the Upper Waitotara district, and, at the time war broke out, was in partnership with his brother at Te Koriti, on the Wanganui River. He left New Zealand with the 7th Reinforcements, N.Z.F.A., and was in Egypt some months before proceeding to France, where he arrived early in 1916. He received a rather severe wound in the Somme offensive, but eventually met his death during a German air raid on October 18th, 1917. In his prime he was an excellent fast bowler, and in all probability one of the best all-round cricketers the School has produced." (In Memoriam, 1914-1918 [Wanganui Collegiate School]) AWMM
