Employed Cambridge Scientific Instrument Coy Ltd. Commemorated on the YPRES (MENIN GATE) MEMORIAL, Ieper, West-Vlaanderen, Belgium. Panel 33 Also listed on family gravestone in churchyard. See also Cambridge Guildhall

From Andy Pay's research into the Marquis de Ruvigny's Roll of Honour the following:

Volume 1, Part 1, Page 106

DARWIN, Erasmus, 2nd Lieut 4th battalion, Aleaxandra, Princess of Wales Own Yorkshire Regiment (T.F) Only son of Horace Darwin, F.R.S. Chairman of Cambridge Scientific Instrument Co, by his wife, the Hon Emma Cecilla (Ida) nee Farrer, only daughter of Thomas Henry, 1st Lord Farrer and grandson of Charles Darwin.

Born Cambridge 7-12-1881, educated at Horris Hill and Marlborough (Cotton House) and gained an exhibition for Mathematics at Trinity College,Cambridge. He went up to Trinity in October 1901 and took the mathematical Tripos in his second year being placed among the senior Optimes. Afterwards he took the mechanical sciences Tripos and was placed in the second class in 1905.

On leaving Cambridge he went through the shops at Messrs Mather and Platts at Manchester. After this he worked for some little while with the Cambridge Scientific Instrument Co., of which he was a director, and then became assistant secretary of Bocklow Vaughan and Co Ltd at Middlesborough. Here he stayed for seven years and at the outbreak of war occupied the postion of secretary to the company.

As soon as war broke out he decided to join the army and on 12-9-14 was gazetted 2nd Lieut in the 4th (Territorial) battalion of the Yorkshires, which after training at Darlington and Newcastle crossed to France, as part of the Northumbria division on 17-4-15 and was within a week called upon to take part in the second battle of Ypres. Here these Territorial troops fresh from home and tried at the very outset almost as highly as men could be tried, behaved with a steadiness and coolness which gained for them the congratulations of the generals commanding their division and their army corps.

Early on the morning of the 24-4-15 the battalion was ordered to attack the village of Fortuin, close to St Julien where the Germans had broken through. This attack they successfully carried out in the face of terrific shellfire, being ordered to retire at dusk.

By driving the enemy back a mile or more they had attained their object which was to prevent a breach in the line, and they hade made good their front with the Canadians and Royal Irish on their right.

It was during this advance that Darwin fell, killed instantaneously. His Commanding Officer, Colonel Bell wrote of him "Loyalty, Courage and Devotion to duty - he had them all .... He died in an attack which gained many compliments to the battalion. He was right in front. It was a mans death". Corporal Wearmouth, who was in his platoon wrote "I am a section leader in his platoon and when we got the order to advance he proved himself a hero. He nursed us men, in fact the comment was, you would say we were on a field day. We had got to within twenty yards of our halting place when he turned to our platoon to say something. As he turned he fell, and I am sure he never spoke. As soon as I could I went to him but he was beyond human aid. Our platoon sadly miss him, as he could not do enough for us, and we are all extremely sorry for you, in your great loss".

Private Wood wrote to a friend in Middlesborough "I would expect you would know poor Mr. Darwin .... I was in his platoon and I can tell you he died a hero. He led us absolutely regardless of the bullets from the German Maxim guns and snipers that whistled all around him".

Just before he left England, when his battalion was under orders for the front, he was summoned to the war office and offered a staff appointment at home in connection with munitions of war. This would have given great scope to his capabilities. "It would have been interesting and important work" he wrote "but of course there are plenty of older men who can do it just as well as I can".

He felt that at the moment his place should be with his Regiment and made, in the words of one present at the interview, a fine appeal to be allowed to go with his men. It was granted and he went gladly with no looking back.

The Times (30-4-15) said of him "Erasmus Darwin would, if he had lived, have added fresh distinction to the name of his familyin a walk of life in which it has never before figured. Between Cambridge and a great iron works in the north there is something of a gulf fixed and one who knew Darwin only in his Cambridge home cannot say anything more than that all that met him in business conceived a very high opinion of his grasp of the subject, his acuteness and administrative ability. It was indeed impossibe to know him without realising that he combined with intellectual ability a calm, sound and practical judgement, and a general capacity for doing things well and thoroughly. He had, too, what must have been invaluable to him in his work, a most genuine sympathy with and affection for working men, and this quality, which, amongst so many other things, had made him love his work at Middlesborough, gave him intense pleasure when soldiering came to him as a wholly new and unlooked for esperience. He delighted in the men, and especially in long expeditions across the moors with his scouts. There is one more quality as to which all his friends would agree, namely a conscientiousness that was eminently sane and wide minded and completely unswerving. No one in the world was more certain what to do what he believd to be right.
