PostSubject: Henry Bayard Rich Royal Engineers   Royal Engineers in the Zulu War EmptySun Nov 20, 2011 9:47 am

Hi All,
An interesting Royal Engineer who enjoyed his sports during his short life.
Henry Bayard Rich b.1849 Berbice British Guyana, son of Frederick Henry Rich, married Ada Melvill Simons in 1881 at Camberwell.
Played in the first FA Cup Final at the Oval on 16th March 1872, Royal Engineers [Chatham] v Wanderers, the wanderers won 1-0, Henry played as a forward.
Died 17 November 1884 at Rawalpindi India and is buried there.
His grave reads, In Loving Memory of Henry Bayard Rich, Captain Royal Engineers who died from the effect of an accident at Polo, 17 November 1884.
Served in the Perak campaign 1875/6, Zulu War 1879, and Egypt 1882.

HB Rich was obviously quite a sportsman. What a care free life of riley people of that class lead back then; playing at it!
Interestingly, it was considered bad sportsmanship to practise or train for your sport back then. A trainer would have been a complete No No; like the caption in the photo: Trainer: none.

Does anyone know if any of the players from that first FA Cup Final team served in the AZW?

Hi All
Only Rich served in the Zulu War, William Merriman who was Captain of the team served in the First Boer War 1880-81.
