UNATTACHED LIST FOR THE TERRITORIAL FORCE.

Second Lieutenant William George Gabain is appointed to serve with the Charterhouse School Contingent, Junior Division, Officers Training Corps. Dated 9th February, 1914.

Extracted from the introduction in The Cambridge Magazine, 10 October 1914:

It is with the greatest pleasure that, by the kindness of his family, we publish the following letters written home during August and September by W. G. Gabain, of Pembroke College. Gabain, who led the Cambridge boxing team to victory, and himself beat his Oxford opponent in each of the three years 1911, 1912 and 1913, was one of the first to volunteer for active service at the front, and has acted as despatch rider from the beginning. He had recently taken up a mastership at Charterhouse; and our gratification at the opportunity of publishing his experiences is enhanced by the fact that he has been an active supporter and a contributor to The Cambridge Magazine from its first number onwards.....

Extract from Illustrated Sporting and Dramatic News - Saturday 15 February 1919, page 11:

THE LATE CAPT. W. G. GABAIN, M.C.

THIS excellent soldier, scholar, and athlete, who was reported missing on the 24th of last March, and is now believed to have been killed in action on that day at Pargny, on the Somme, was the only son of Mr. C. E. Gabain, J. P., and of Mrs. Gabain, of the Manor House, Bushey, Herts. In sport he was most distinguished as a boxer, and when representing Charterhouse he won the Public Schools championship at Aldershot on three occasions, the feathers in 1906 and the lightweight in 1907 and 1909. On going to Pembroke College, Cambridge, he was selected three times, 1910, 1911, and 1912, as the lightweight representative against Oxford, and each time gained the day for his university, receiving the Challenge Cup. In the ring his modesty and sympathy drew both his supporters and his opponents towards him, and his only regret seemed to be that both sides could not win. At Charterhouse Capt. Gabain also played football for the school. When at the front he made use of his knowledge of boxing and of sports to help the men under his command to fill in their leisure time by healthy exercise, and the last letter received from him spoke of his having got up a series of sports and boxing amongst the men during the intervals between the attacks of the enemy. It was on his own application that he was transferred to a combatant force for his knowledge of French and German made him otherwise valuable and when last seen he was holding on with a handful of men against very superior numbers.

Extract from The Scotsman - Thursday 6 February 1919, page 3:

Captain William George Gabain, M.C., Staff, attached 2nd Rifle Brigade, reported missing on March 24, 1918, now believed to have been killed in action on that day at Pargny on the Somme, was the only son of Mr C. E. Gabain, J.P., and of Mrs Gabain, of The Manor House, Bushey, Herts. He was born in Havre, France, in 1889. At Pembroke College, Cambridge, of which he was a scholar, he took his degree in Classics and won the boxing three times against Oxford, besides distinguishing himself in many other ways. When war broke out he was at Rugeley, in camp with the Charterhouse O.T.C., of which he was an officer. His knowledge of French and German at once got him a post as a dispatch rider, and he was in France from August 12, 1914, till early in 1915. He went through the retreat from Mons, and his work was mentioned in dispatches. From January 1915 he served with the Intelligence Corps, was again mentioned in dispatches, and awarded the Military Cross in June 1917. After several applications to be transferred to a combatant force, he was given, in January 1918, a company in the 2nd Rifle Brigade, retaining his captaincy. On March 24, he was reported missing. His Adjutant wrote:— "He was last seen on tho morning of that day, in a sunken road, holding on with a handful of men, although practically surrounded by infinitely superior numbers of the enemy. Throughout the previous night he did fine work in holding the bridge under most trying circumstances and in tho face of overwhelming numbers."

Extract from Illustrated Sporting and Dramatic News - Saturday 31 July 1915, page 5:

THE SPORTSMAN'S ROLL OF HONOUR.

MY readers will doubtless readily call the all too brief references, in reports which were published a few weeks ago, to a stirring struggle in France in which a party of Scots Guards fought to the last cartridge. The ground where this fight had taken place was thoroughly searched a few days later, and all the officers and men who had been killed were found surrounded by dead Germans. Among the officers who were missing after that affair was one who has since been reported by the Germans as having died in one of their hospitals. This was the Old Car thusian, Lieut. W. G. W. Garforth, the only son of Col. and the Hon. Mrs. Garforth, of Westow Hall, York. Lieut. Garforth joined the Scots Guards on January 5th, and was at the front on February 24th. He was through Neuve Chapelle from beginning to end, and I had a most graphic description of that battle from him a short while afterwards. Then came the engagement at Festubert, and his gallant end, when, under the command of Capt. Sir Frederick Fitz-Wygram, he and his company fought to that grand finish. One of his old schoolmasters wrote to his bereaved parents: "You have lost him, but his life has been given for the best of causes, and you would not have held him back had you known the issue, nor would he have stayed behind." He was a member of the I. Zingari, served on the committee of the Bucks County C.C., and played for Bucks in the Minor Counties Championship. Before going to Charterhouse Lieut. Garforth was at a private school at Cheam, of which Mr Arthur S. Tabor, the Eton, Cambridge University, and Middlesex cricketer is the headmaster.

PUBLIC-SCHOOL FOOTBALL.
CHARTERHOUSE.

ONLY three colours, H. A. Wellesley, the captain, C. O. Fricker, and R. E. Norris, re main at Charterhouse of the fine side of last year, which defeated Repton, Westminster, and Winchester. But inter-club "Runabouts," so charac teristic a feature of Carthusian football, give a plethora of material ,for the captain to draw upon. And judging from the form displayed in the trials against the Casuals, Woolwich, and Kenley, H. A. Welles- ley, a splendid left back, who is not forget ful of the needs of his forwards, has got together a team not unworthy of comparison with the formidable combination of 1908-9. C. 0. Fricker, a hard-working player, with a capital idea of making openings, is playing a keen game at centre-half, and is well supported by the new choices, L. Gjers and E. Gibbons. G. C. Dowling is proving a capable colleague to his captain at back, in the severe tests which the strong opponents of Charterhouse subject the school to, while in the attacking line R. E. Norris, inside right, shows plenty of resource. R. M. Bruce is a good and tricky centre, and R. Boosey is fast and heavy on the inside right. The going down of C. B. Johnson, the present Oxonian Freshman, a dashing player, has weakened the wings, but still, in a school which has yielded such delightful exponents of "Soccer" as P. N. Cobbold, A. M. and P. M. Walters, C. Wreford-Brown, and G. 0. Smith, no great difficulty has been experienced in finding two capable outside forwards. The position in goal rests between R. P. Hudson and N. E. Burdon.
