Harris, Henry Edward (Pre ’95) born Brighton 6.8.1854 died Littlehampton 8.11.1923. He was a batsman who played in three matches for Hampshire in 1880 scoring just 53 runs at an average of 10.60. He is also recorded as playing for St George’s Rifles (for whom he bowled) v MCC, for Brighton and for 18 of St Luke’s v the Australians at the Antelope in non first-class matches. His son ELJ, played for Sussex in the 1920s.

Harrison, Bernard Reginald Stanhope (‘Bernie’) (337) born Worcester 28.9.1934, died Basingstoke 18.3.2006. Although born in Worcester, ‘Bernie’ Harrison was a Basingstoke man who played for the local club for many years, and with Phil Bichard, wrote a club history. As a top-order batsman, he was unfortunate that his time at Hampshire coincided with the finest achievements of Marshall, Gray and Horton and his 14 first-class appearances were spread over six seasons, 1957-1962. He played for the county 2nd XI in 1956 and made his first-class debut v Oxford University in 1957. He waited a year for the next game and his Championship debut v his native county at Portsmouth, but scored just a single in his one innings. In every season, one of his matches was v Oxford University and at Portsmouth in 1961 it brought his one first-class century, 110; his two half-centuries were also against the University. He played a few Championship games when Marshall was injured in that title-winning season, and in 1962 played in five matches, but with little success.

That was the end of his first-class career and his time on the county staff, but he played for Hampshire 2nd XI over 10 seasons from the start of the 2nd XI Championship in 1959. He took up a teaching career which he combined successfully with coaching, and for many years he compiled the county’s 2nd XI statistics. He was good footballer, playing for Crystal Palace, Southampton and Exeter City.

Harrison, Gerald Cartmell (188 – Amateur) born Congleton, Cheshire 8.10.1883, died Nottinghamshire 10.8.1943.  He was a batsman who played for Devon and then made his first-class debut for the Royal Navy in 1912. He played in 20 Championship matches and two other first-class for Hampshire either side of the First World War and first-class for Combined Services in 1920. Nine of his Championship matches came in 1914, there were seven in 1919 and a further four in 1920. In all 22 first-class matches for Hampshire he scored 991 runs at 28.31 with one century (111 v Gloucestershire in 1919) and four half-centuries, including 82 v Warwickshire in 1920 in a Hampshire total of 616-7 declared. In 1914 he scored 91* for Hampshire v MCC, coming in at 55-5 and taking Hampshire to 198 all out.
