Description

Captain Eric John Hughes . Sherwood Foresters (ON 20-27) Died 26 May 1945 age 33 in the UK from injuries sustained while on manoeuvers in Germany . Buried Nottingham Crematorium. Son of JH Hughes, Commercial Traveller, of Nottingham.

From The Nottinghamian March 1945:
In Business, he was secretary of J.Hughes Ltd. Wholesale Stationers, and had a wide circle of friends.
He was well known in Cricket and football circles. In the former game he was a very loyal member of the Old Nottinghamians' CC acting for many years in the capacity of Match Secretary. On occasion his bowling was devastating, having a nip from the pitch which completely deceived batsmen and his fielding at cover-point was invariably excellent. In addition he captained Sherwood Amateurs F.C for many years, and had taken a prominent place in the formation of the club.
Wherever he went his infectious good humour made him many friendships.
