Lest we forget

On November 11, our thoughts turn to those who died fighting for their country in war. To commemorate Remembrance Day, the names of ninety Canadian cricketers who died in World War 1 are listed below. This compilation is far from complete, and derived from a fairly brief on-line search of Wisden obituaries. The list is depressingly long, however. Many of these men were perhaps not particularly distinguished cricketers- Wisden during the way years had no cricket to report, and its pages are filled with a long list of those killed in the war were associated with cricket in any way. Thus many of these listed were schoolboy cricketers. Upper Canada College alone provides a sad XI of names – Burden, Burrow, Clarkson, Curry, Drummond, Johnson, Maclean, Shanley, Stinson and Tuck. Most were in their twenties, but Private Samuel Grimshaw (Yorkshire C.C. and S. Edmund’s C.C. of Toronto) died of wounds aged 63- after lying about his age in order to join up. They come from all over Canada – although several prominent Newfoundland cricketers who died in the war appear to have not made Wisden’s lists, nearly every other province is represented.
As mentioned above this list is far from complete, but provides a stark picture of the impact of the Great War on Canada, and its cricketers. We honour these men and all others who died in the service of their countries.
