From July of that year to July of 1902 he was Superintendent of Gymnasia, Western District; from November 1903 to May 1904, District Assistant Adjutant-General (temporary) South Africa; and from the latter date to May 1907, was Staff Captain, Standerton Sub-District, South Africa. He received his Majority in June 1907 and from September 1909 to August 1913, was Superintendent of Gymnasia, Aldershot Command. He was at one time Captain of the Aldershot Cricket XI and did much to encourage love of sport among both officers and men and “was a sportsman in every sense of the word.” His Commanding Officer, writing of him from France after his death said: “Had he alone survived I should have been content for the future of the regiment.” Major Higginbotham married, in 1890, Florence Hopkins, who died in Africa in 1906. In 1909 he married Lucy Frances Gray, fourth daughter of the Right Honourable James Round, who predeceased him by a few days, leaving no family. As a sportsman, Major Higginbothams’s interests covered a wide ground and included shooting, hockey, golf, skating, lawn tennis, rackets, and (in his younger days) football and running, but cricket was essentially his game. He belonged to the “Rag” (Army and Navy), M.C.C., and innumerable other cricket clubs including “Butterflies” and “Incogniti”.
