Obituary, 'The Shirburnian', July 1945: 'Hew Robin Brymer (d, '28-'33). Hew Brymer was the younger brother of J.H.P. Brymer (a) and came to Sherborne in September 1928. A powerfully built boy, he was in the second XV. He left to pass into Sandhurst and was eventually gazetted to the K.S.L.I. He was killed in May 1945. Though large in size he was quiet and unassuming and he made friends by these characteristics.'
