Henry O’Brien Frederick Hayward (son of Robert Francis Hayward)

Hayward, Henry O’Brien Frederick; http://www.winchestercollegeatwar.com/archive/hayward-henry-obrien-frederick/: He was the fourth and youngest son of Robert Francis Hayward, of Howsell, Worcestershire, and Alfreda Mary Aimée Hayward (daughter of the Reverend Frederick Bransby Toulmin). He came to Kingsgate House from Mowden School, Brighton, in September 1926. Two of his brothers, Edward Ronald Hayward (K1911-1915) and Gerald Baldwin Hayward (K1918-1923), had been distinguished members of the school (Edward was killed in action at Salonika in 1916, serving with 99 Brigade RFA – see individual entry).

Following a sciences course, he got into Sixth Book, became a School prefect and was in Commoner XV, as well as being a gifted long-distance runner. Before entering Brasenose College, Oxford, in October 1932, he took six months of practical engineering. In 1935 he was the leader and organizer of the Oxford University Greenland Expedition, and he was a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society. After taking his degree in 1935 he worked first in Manchester, with Metropolitan-Vickers, and in 1937 with Stuart Cameron Ltd. in Vancouver (where his family had lived earlier). He then became a test engineer with the British Columbia Electric Railway Company.

Always a keen soldier, he had early on taken the opportunity to join a Territorial Artillery unit, gaining his commission in 1935. He served with the Royal Canadian Artillery from 1937 to 1939, and on his return from Canada early in the war became a gunner with the Royal Artillery, being promoted Captain in 1940. He was subsequently posted to the Royal Buckinghamshire Yeomanry Field Regiment, which served in India from 1942.

There he developed polio, which proved fatal within a few weeks. At the time of his death at Poona on January 15th 1943, he was twenty-nine. He is buried in grave 12.B.8, Kirkee War Cemetery, Poona, India.
