Extract from De Ruvigny's Roll of Honour 1914-1918, Volume 1, page 75-76:

CHALLONER, ALAN CRAWHALL, 2nd Lieut., 6th Battn. Duke of Cornwall's only s. of Frederick Charlton Turner Challoner, of Ealing, co. Middlesex. by his wife, dau. of the late Joseph Crawhall ; b. Ealing, 18 Dec. 1892 ; educ. St. Paul's School, and Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge ; obtained his commission in the Duke of Cornwall's L.I. 31 .Aug. 1914, and was killed in action at the Battle of Hooge, 30 July, 1915 ; unm. He was buried in the Sanctuary Wood, in front of Hooge. Flanders, with six brother officers. Col. M. Stokoe wrote : "Ever since your son went to France he had done splendidly. He was brave and fearless, and always was a great assistance in attending the wounded owing to his medical knowledge. He was extremely popular with the men and handled them excellently. He was just the stamp of man to make an officer and leader of men, and we shall have great difficulty in replacing him." Major Carew Barnett also wrote, saying : "He was doing splendidly, and at the time of being wounded he was in command of a company, all the officers of which had been killed or wounded. The gap he creates is, indeed, a hard one to fill, both as an officer and a friend." A few days before he was killed, Lieut. Challoner got permission to do a little reconnoitring on his own account in a wood to the north of Menin Road, and was warned not to show himself, as it was shelled by the enemy on the least suspicion of the presence of any English going up with one of his men he came upon a number of dead British and German soldiers, a large number of accoutrements, and in a dug-out about 100 rounds of trench mortar shells, etc., also the body of an English officer of the rank of Capt., Royal Fusilier badge and ribbon of the Military Cross, which he took steps to have buried. Subsequent inquiry proved the identity of the officer who had been killed by a shell five weeks earlier evidently by concussion, as the body was found lying close to a shell hole but unwounded by a doctor and party, who removed It to a place of safety for burial, but on returning later it had disappeared, and was not found until Lieut. Challoner came upon it in the wood. Its presence and the bodies of the British and German soldiers, etc.. remain a mystery. Returning to camp with as many of the mortar shells as he and his man could carry, Lieut. Challoner's attention was drawn to the fact that the wood was being heavily shelled. When he observed, " Yes, I know, before leaving I showed myself at the edge of the wood to draw the enemy's fire, which they are wasting quite satisfactorily."
