Remembering Thomas Plowman

Added 1st January 2020 by Tom Boorman

1st January 2020 marks 100 years since the passing of Thomas Plowman, the famous former Captain of the 3rd Enfield.

He was appointed to the role in 1892 at the age of just 16 and served until his death, with the exception of a period between 1916 and 1918 as he served during the First World War.

During his time as Captain the 3rd Enfield won the Daily Telegraph Shield, which was a London District competition for the most efficient all-round Company, seven times. This included the very first competition in 1906. The Company also came second four times, and in fact only failed to achieve at least third place once at the time of his death.

Plowman served in a variety of roles in the wider Boys' Brigade, including as Secretary and President of Enfield Battalion, the London Committee and the national Brigade Executive. He also served as a Sunday School teacher and a Deacon at Christ Church.

Robert Wilson, our Company Archivist, has written an article about Thomas Plowman which appears in the December 2019 & January 2020 edition of Christ Church's newsletter. It can be read online at www.ccurc.org.uk/newsletter.
