Biography

Michael Warriner went up to Trinity College, Cambridge from Harrow and was in the winning Cambridge boat in 1928, 1929 and 1930, his last year as President of the Cambridge University Boat Club. Other successes included victories at Henley in the Visitors’ in 1928 and the Stewards’ and the Ladies’ in 1929. In 1930 like many rowing blues of the time, Warriner joined the Sudan Government Service but returned to England in 1934 and entered the business world as an engineer. In the war, he was, at first, with the Indian Army but he then served in Greece and the Middle East as a Lieutenant Colonel in the REME. He was awarded the MBE in 1945.
