Thomas Arthur Kemp

Thomas Arthur Kemp was born in Bolton on 12 August 1915 and educated at Denstone College before winning a Blue at Cambridge in 1936. He later qualified as a doctor at St Mary's Hospital and played fly-half for Richmond. He won the first of his five caps for England in 1937, was captain against Wales in a wartime international, and gained his final full caps in 1948. His 13 games for the Barbarians included four as captain (Leicester 1940 and 1949, Thorneloe's XV 1942 and 1943)) and the historic match against Australia in 1948. He served on the Barbarian committee in 1948/49. He was also an RFU committeeman and England selector and in 1971/72 president of the RFU. Tommy Kemp died on 26 November 2004, aged 89.
