Brash, Harold David (1880–1929)

from Referee (Sydney)

The death of Mr. Harold Brash has occurred in Switzerland while on holiday. The late Mr. Brash, for many years, was a member of Mercantile Club with which he won many sculling races. In 1908 he was successful in the Australian championship, only to go under to A. Richards (South Melbourne) in the Victorian championship about six months later. However, he had his revenge on the latter, two weeks later in the Henley sculls, which he won in the fast time of 6min 58sec, a time which has been bettered on only three occasions. H. Brash also won the sculling event at Henley in 1904, 1906, and 1907. J. Barton is the only other sculler, who has won the event four times.
