Extract from The Last Post - Roll of Officers who fell in South Africa 1899-1902 by Mildred G Dooner, published by Naval and Military Press

Mulloy. — Lieut. Charles Coote Mulloy, 2nd Batt. Queen's Own Royal West Kent Regt., died of abscess of the liver at Kroonstad, March 14th, 1901. He was the eldest son of Col. Mulloy, late Royal Engineers, of Hughes-town, co. Roscommon, and Kelvedon, Reading, was born Nov., 1875, and educated at the United Services College, Westward Ho. He entered the Royal West Kent Regt. from the Royal Military College in March, 1896, and was promoted lieut. in Sept., 1898. One of his old school¬fellows writes, "he was good at games and work, and very popular at Sandhurst and in his regiment." Lieut. Mulloy was present at the fighting at Biddulphsberg and the action at Wittebergen. In a letter written shortly before his death, he thus described the life at Frankfort: "About twice a week we have a stiff little fight, other¬wise the monotony of this place is unbroken." His name is inscribed on a memorial tablet in the United Services College at Westward Ho; it is also engraved underneath the stained glass window in All Saints' Church, Maidstone, erected to the memory of all those of the Queen's Own Royal West Kent Regt. who fell in the war.
