Cecil was the only child of Emile Francis Hubert and Eleanor Emma de Wael. Emile had previously been married to Emma Plank (died 1889) with whom he had had nine children.
Cecil was educated at Aldenham School and Dulwich College (1911 - 14) where he gained several prizes in mathematics. He left Dulwich in July 1914 and joined the Officers Training Corps.
He was in camp with the O. T. C. when war was declared and at once applied for a commission, being gazetted 2nd Lieutenant in October 1914, being posted to the Royal Field Artillery (T.F.). In July 1916 he proceeded to France, being attached to 1/8th London Royal Field Artillery (236th Brigade). He first went into action on the Somme and later was present at High Wood, Messines Ridge, and the third battle of Ypres.
As a result of gas poisoning he spent 3 months in hospital but rejoined his unit in December 1917. When the German offensive started he was near Bapaume and was severely wounded on 24th March. He died from his wounds at Wimereux on 6th April, 1918, and was buried there.
