Biography

Reggie Pridmore attended the now defunct Elstow School, Bedford, which was closed down permanently in 1916 when it was requisitioned as a school for Army officers. At school he was a notable hockey player and cricketer and later achieved distinction in both sports. At hockey, Pridmore played inside-left for Coventry, and represented England 19 times between 1908 and 1913. At the 1908 Olympics he was England's leading scorer with four goals against Ireland and hat-tricks against both France and Scotland. As a cricketer he played 14 times for Warwickshire as a middle order batsman between 1909 and 1912 and also appeared occasionally for Hertfordshire. During the war, Pridmore served as a major in the Royal Horse & Field Artillery, winning a Military Cross on the Somme before being killed in action in Italy.
