Herbert Stone, born in Burton-on-Trent, was an early volunteer for the 1st Sportsman’s Battalion that was raised by Mr E Cunliffe-Owen in November 1914. As the name suggests hundreds of sportsmen flocked to the Hotel Cecil in the Strand, and the unit was taken on by the Royal Fusiliers [1]. His link with Malvern is not altogether known – Soldiers Died in the Great War as living in Worcestershire, but his death was not mentioned in the Malvern News.
