Browne, Herbert Maxwell

Lieutenant Browne was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Browne, of Preston House, Redhill. He was educated at Haileybury College and then came to King's. He passed through the Faculty of Engineering, and after some time in Scotland he obtained an important appointment with the Central Argentine Railway Company. After the outbreak of the war, his ardent patriotism impelled him to return to England, and after a course of training with the O.T.C., he was gazetted Second Lieutenant in the Essex Regiment. First at the Dardanelles, and later in Egypt, he was nearly two years on active service abroad. He was killed on March 26th last. He was a prominent figure in the croquet world, and in 1911 had won the Champion Cup offered by the Croquet Association. He has two brothers still serving; viz., Lieutenant-Colonel P.H. Browne, at Basra, and one brother, an N.C.O. in the Gordon Highlanders. King's College Review, Dec. 1917
