Harry Antrobus, the son of Henry and Martha Antrobus, was born in Cheshire in 1894.
After beginning his working life as a labourer, he was an assistant at the local club in Lymm before becoming an assistant at Dunham Massey.
During the war he served with the 13th Battalion, King’s Royal Rifles, (the “Niblick Brigade”). He wrote to his parents from a base hospital in August 1916 saying that he had been wounded in the leg and the eye (though his sight was not affected).
He lived to tell the tale and, after the war, the 1921 census records him as professional back at the Lymm club, still living with his parents.
I can find no mention of him thereafter in golfing circles but he lived until 27 June 1964 and had been married to Ethel Gertrude Owen, who survived him by five years, since August 1925 and had a daughter, Barbara, born in 1931 who died in 1976.
