CAPTAIN JOHN RUSSELL POUND, 3rd (RESERVE) attd. 2nd BATTN. THE KING'S (SHROPSHIRE LIGHT INFANTRY), was the eldest son of Sir J. Lulham and Lady Pound, of Shenley, Shepherds Hill, Highgate, and a grandson of the late Sir John Pound, Bart., Lord Mayor of London in 1904-05. Captain Pound was born in London on the 7th June, 1887, and saw educated at Merchant Taylors' School, London, and St. John's College, Oxford, and he graduated with -First Class Honours in Mathematics, afterwards taking his M.A. degree. In 1909 he became Assistant Master at Shrewsbury School, where he remained, with an interval of one year, spent at Christ Church College, Cawnpore, until the outbreak of the war. He was a good athlete, and was in the 1st XV at School. He played for the Old Merchant Taylors, was Captain of his College XV, and played for Oxford University v. Manchester. He also represented North v. South in the International Trials.

Captain Pound took great interest in the O.T.C. at Shrewsbury, of which he was Captain, and he was gazetted Captain on the Unattached List of the Territorial Force in February, 1910. On the outbreak of the war he applied for a commission, and in August, 1914, he was gazetted Captain to the 3rd (Reserve) Battalion, Shropshire Light Infantry. For active service he was attached to the 2nd Battalion, and went with it to France.

He was killed in the trenches while in command of his company near Ypres on the 27th April, 1915.

Captain Pound married Elsie Iren, daughter of W. H. Pendlebury, Esq., M.A., and Mrs. Pendlebury, of Shrewsbury. His death is the second loss which his family has sustained in the war with Germany. His youngest brother, 2nd Lieutenant Murray Stuart Pound, The Queen's (Royal West Surrey Regiment), died on the 7th November, 1914, from the effects of wounds received in action near Ypres.
