Extract from The Bond of Sacrifice 1914-1918:

CAPTAIN DAVID INGLIS, ADJUTANT 1/4th GURKHA RIFLES, who was killed in action on the 21st December, 1914, at Givenchy, France, was the youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Inglis, of Lovestone, Girvan, Ayrshire, and was born there on the 21st April, 1884. An ancestor, Colonel Inglis, fell at the Battle of Waterloo. Captain Inglis was educated at Bedford and the R.M.C., Sandhurst, and on passing out of the latter he received an unattached 2nd Lieutenancy in August, 1903, joining the Indian Army in December of the following year, having served his probationary period in India with the Northamptonshire Regiment.

He was promoted Lieutenant in November, 1905, and Captain in August, 1912.

His Commanding Officer gave the following account of his death : " A portion of the battalion was detailed for a night attack on the German trenches ; and, though it was not his duty to be there, he begged me to allow him to go with them. I gave him permission, and he led the charge, which captured the German trenches. I cannot express to you what a loss he is to me personally and to the battalion generally. Apart from our great personal friendship, he has always been my right-hand man in all regimental matters : keen and thoroughly up in all his work, with a knowledge of, and influence with, the men that no other officer possessed. His was one of those gallant natures that would have won the Victoria Cross sooner or later if he "had lived, for he would always have volunteered for the most dangerous tasks ; and there are few indeed like him, and his loss is irreparable. All his brother officers ask me to send their sincere sympathy."

For his services in the war he was mentioned in Sir John French's Despatch of the 31st May, 1915. An elder brother of Captain Inglis was killed in the South African War.

He was a keen golfer and fisher, and a member of the Turnberry Golf Course.
