Oxfordshire & Buckinghamshire Light Infantry (The 2/4th Battalion)

Research and Resources around the Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry during WWI

Captain C. S. W. Marcon

From G. K. Rose, The Story of the 2/4th Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry.

“We change into gumboots in an old cellar and our journey commences. See the Colonel, Cuthbert, Marcon, Brown, Stockton, Robinson and myself lead off down a communication trench behind a guide, pledged to take us to the Berks Headquarters.”

Is this the same C. S. W. Marcon writing Boy’s Own Paper articles on hockey?

The Cranleighan, March 1960
It was with regret that we learnt of the death of the Reverend C. S. W. Marcon, M.A., R.D., who was Master and Hockey Coach at Cranleigh from 1921-1936, and a Vice-President of the Club since 1929. He gained twenty-one caps for England, playing at inside-left. With S. H. Shoveller and S. H. Saville he made up the finest trio of inside forwards England has ever had. He played a big part in developing hockey at Cranleigh.
