Li Col. Charles Evelyn Graham Hope, aged 70. Educated at Marlborough, he became a cavalry officer in the Indian Army, and on his retirement devoted himself to the welfare of the horse, particularly through journalism. In 1938 he became assistant editor of Riding, and in 1949 was concerned with the launch of the magazine Pony, the only journal in the world aimed exclusively at the young rider.

A year later he started Show Jumping, now Light Horse, which a few years ago was banned by the British Horse Society for its outspoken opinions about the treatment of horses in show

jumping. His campaign, however, was largely instrumental in obtaining better conditions for showjumpers.

A Catholic, he was active in the Cell Movement.
