Reginald Harold Kenneth DAVIS (K30-35)
Reginald Davis was a notable sportsman at Framlingham where he was in the First Team for Cricket, Hockey and Rugby, the Shooting VIII and was Captain of Athletics. He was versatile enough to appear in the school performance of “King Henry V“ in 1934.
Upon leaving school he attended the Royal Dick Veterinary College in Edinburgh where he became M.R.C.V.S. Veterinary Surgeon. He served in the Second World War in the Royal Army Veterinary Corps and rose to the rank of Major. He was posted to Burma which must have been one of the toughest possible assignments for an army veterinary surgeon.
Reginald’s last year at Framlingham was unusual for its connection with the Borrett brothers. In the autumn of 1934 C. W. Borrett was Captain of the 1st XV but, because of injury, was non-playing. J. P. Lloyd-Bostock (30-35) became Captain on the field until he, too, was injured when Reginald Davis took over. In the spring of 1935 Reginald was Captain of Hockey, the team containing a certain N. F. Borrett who became Captain the following year.
