23/11/1940 PLAYER DIES AFTER GAME
The tragic death of Frederick Leslie Green, aged thirty is recorded. He died at the Royal United Hospital after enjoying the post match refreshments at the Red House Restaurant. He had captained the Bath side against the R.A.F. XV that day and had chatted jocularly in the committee room, was in good spirits generally and seemed perfectly well.
He was described as “a great hearted player, a grand sportsman and a delightful companion He had not played since last season and was not trained for a hard match, though he led his men well, was always in the fray, and appeared to thoroughly enjoy the game.” “His death was a great loss to the club.”
