IUXTA FIDEM DEFUNCTI SUNT OMNES ISTI NON ACCEPTIS REPROMISSIONIBUS
SED A LONGE ASPICIENTES ET SALUTANTES
ET CONFITENTES QUIA PEREGRINI ET HOSPITES SUNT SUPER TERRAM.

All of these died in faith without having received the promises,
but from a distance they saw and greeted them.
They confessed that they were strangers and foreigners on the earth.
(Hebrews 11: 13)

[1901] Second Lieutenant 4th Battalion, Yorkshire Regiment who was killed in action on Saturday, 24th April 1915. Aged 33. Son of Horace and Ida Darwin, of The Orchard, Cambridge.

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.

He was a born fighting soldier, a most capable battery commander, and during the whole time he was serving under me I never found a single fault in him, nor did I have a single complaint from him I miss that great big, cheery fellow, with his wonderfully joyful laugh and his perfect good temper. He was the life and soul of his battery," and a brother officer: " His death was nearly as great a blow to us as It must be to you, as we loved him as only a soldier can love a very brave and gallant officer."

CAPTAIN the Honble. DOUGLAS ARTHUR KINNAIRD, MASTER OF KINNAIRD, 2nd BATTN. SCOTS GUARDS, who was killed in action on the 24th October, 1914, near Ypres, was the eldest son of the eleventh Baron Kinnaird and the Baroness Kinnaird, of Rossie Priory, Inchture, Perthshire, and was born there on the 20th August, 1879. He was related to the Duke of Leinster, the Earl of Gainsborough, and Sir Andrew Agnew. Captain Kinnaird was educated at Eton and Trinity College, Cambridge, as Lord Kinnaird had been, taking his degree of M.A. at the University. He was a Lieutenant in the Eton College Volunteer Corps, and also in the Cambridge University Volunteer Corps. He subsequently joined the Forfar and Kincardine Artillery Militia, afterwards entering the Scots Guards in May, 1901, becoming Lieutenant in February, 1904.

The 2nd Battalion Scots Guards formed part of the VIIth Division, which left England for Belgium early in October, and in the severe fighting near Kruiseik, in which Captain Kinnaird was killed, the battalion lost many officers. The Master of Kinnaird, who obtained his company in February, 1912, was not married, and his next brother, the Hon. K. F. Kinnaird, becomes heir to the barony.

He was a member of the Guards' and Bachelors' Clubs, and among his recreations were polo and cricket.

Extract from Dundee Evening Telegraph - Monday 2 November 1914, page 1:

MASTER OF KINNAIRD.
Son and Heir of Lord Kinnaird,
Has Been Killed in Yser Battle.

Intimation was received at Rossie Priory to-day that the Master of Kinnaird, son and heir of Lord Kinnaird, had been killed in action at the Yser on 24th ult.

The Hon. Douglas Arthur Kinnaird was a lieutenant in the Scots Guards. He was born on 20th August, 1879, and was educated at Trinity College, Cambridge.

Great sympathy will be extended throughout the Carse of Gowrie to Lord and Lady Kinnaird on their loss.

Extract from Dundee Courier - Tuesday 3 November 1914, page 4:

HEIR OF LORD KINNAIRD
OF ROSSIE PRIORY
IS KILLED WHILE FIGHTING
IN FRANCE.

ONLY 600 OF BATTALION OF 1200
ANSWER ROLL CALL.

Information was received at Rossie Priory yesterday that the Hon. Douglas Arthur Kinnaird, the Master of Kinnaird, and son of Lord and Lady Kinnaird, of Rossie Priory, Perthshire, had been killed in action on the Yser on 24th October.

Lord and Lady Kinnaird are at present in London, where they are spending the winter months, and the sad news was conveyed to them there.

Deceased was a captain in the 2d Battalion of the Scots Guards. He was 35 years of age, and was gazetted second lieutenant on 22d May, 1901, lieutenant on 1st February, 1904, and captain on 3d February, 1912. He was the eldest of four brothers, two of whom are at present serving with the colours, Kenneth Fitzgerald, with the Scottish Horse, and Arthur Middleton, with a London Territorial body.

Educated at Cambridge.

The late Master Kinnaird, who was educated at Cambridge, took a great interest , all military matters. He was busily engaged training recruits until about a month ago, when his battalion was ordered to the front for active service. Out of the 1200 who comprised the battalion, only some 600 answered the roll-call at the conclusion of the engagement in which the Master of Kinnaird was killed. Deceased was in command of the battalion when he met his death. His servant was wounded in the same engagement.

The late Master of Kinnaird, who was unmarried, was most popular with all who knew him, and he will be sadly missed. His untimely death has cast a deep gloom over the surrounding district.

Extract from Scottish Referee - Friday 6 November 1914, page 4:

LORD KINNAIRD'S SON KILLED.

The death is announced this week of Captain the Hon. Douglas Arthur Kinnaird, the eldest son of Lord Kinnaird, President of the English Football Association and President of the Polytechnic Harriers. Captain Kinnaird, who was 35 years of age, was killed in action on October 24. His death will be a great blow to Polytechnic sportsmen. He was a frequent attendant at the executive meetings, and a protagonist of every form of athletic sport. It is but a few weeks back that Lieut.-Col. Ian Hogg, son of the founder of the institute, was killed in action, while Major H. W. Studd, brother to Mr J. E. K. Studd, president of the institute, has been severely wounded in action.

Extract from the Stock Exchange Memorial Book:

CAPTAIN ERIC FRANK PENN, Grenadier Guards, was the son of Mr. and Mrs. William Penn, and was born in 1878.

He was educated at Eton and Trinity College, Cambridge. Captain Penn was a distinguished and versatile sportsman. He played cricket and football for Eton, and he won the School Quarter Mile and two other events. He gained his Blue for cricket in 1899.

When the South African war began he went to the front with the 3rd Battalion of the Royal Scots, which he had joined while still at Eton. He was invalided home in 1901 with the rank of Captain.

He went back to Cambridge and again played against Oxford at cricket. Later on he played brilliantly for Norfolk County.

On leaving the University he went into the City and became a partner in the firm of Sir R. W. Carden and Co, and a member of the Stock Exchange in 1905.

On the outbreak of war Captain Penn joined the Norfolk Yeomanry, but in his impatience to get into action transferred to the Grenadier Guards and went to the front with the 4th Battalion as a subaltern.

After the battle of Loos he was promoted to Captain and mentioned in despatches for distinguished gallantry in the field.

He was killed on 18 October 1915 at the Hohenzollern Redoubt.

Captain Penn during his service in the Army gained the same golden reputation as an ideal English gentleman, which he had earned all through his life from his schooldays.

A writer in the “Eton Chronicle” said of him: “Prominent in games and with a stainless record, always cheerful and full of grit, he attracted to himself all that was best at Eton. No one could fail to love and honour him for his noble qualities."

One of his brother officers wrote: “I can never forget what his example has been to me, and I know that it has helped many along the road."

Another wrote “He was an exceptionally fine company commander and his men would have done anything for him."

He married, in 1906, Gladys, daughter of Mr. Charles Ebden of Baldstow Place, Sussex, by whom he had one son, born posthumously.

Sir Frank Stanley Day

[1896] [Date of death listed as 26th January 1915 on SDGW] Old Etonian. Captain, 10th (Prince of Wales's Own Royal) Hussars. Killed in action or 26th October 1914 (CWGC). Aged 27. 2nd Bart. Son of Sir Charles Day Rose, 1st Bart.; husband of Lady Daphne Rose, of Hardwick House, Whitchurch, Oxon. Served in the South African Campaign. Buried in ZANDVOORDE CHURCHYARD, Zonnebeke, West-Vlaanderen, Belgium. Grave 1. See also Lords MCC WW1

Extract from The Bond of Sacrifice Volume 1:

CAPTAIN SIR FRANK STANLEY ROSE, BART., Xth (PRINCE OF WALES'S OWN ROYAL) HUSSARS, was born on the 27th April, 1877. He succeeded his father—Sir Charles Day Rose—as second Baronet in 1913, and he was a grandson of the Right Hon. Sir John Rose, P.C., G.C.M.G. Sir Frank Rose was educated at Eton and Trinity College, Cambridge, joining the 10th Hussars in May, 1900, becoming Lieutenant in June, 1904.

He served with his Regiment in the South African War, being present at operations in the Transvaal and Cape Colony. For his services he was mentioned in Despatches ("London Gazette," 17th January, 1902), and received the Queen's medal with four clasps.

One of the characteristics of the Great War has been the liability of the cavalry to be employed on dismounted duties, and Sir Frank Rose was so employed when he was killed, on the 26th October, 1914, while fighting with his Regiment in the trenches, near Zandvoorde, where he is buried. These trenches were under heavy shell fire all day and the casualties were very severe, Lieutenant Turner also being killed. Sir F. Rose married Daphne, daughter of the late Captain Henry Brooks Gaskell, of Kiddington Hall, Oxfordshire, and left three children: Charles Henry, who succeeds him in the Baronetcy, born October, 1912; Amy, born May, 1911; and Helen Briar, born June, 1915.

He was a member of the Army and Navy Club, Boodle's, and the Royal Automobile Club, while his chief recreations were music and hunting.

An extract from The London Gazette, No. 29530, dated 31st March, 1916, records the following

During the landing from the S.S. River Clyde at V Beach, in the Gallipoli Peninsula, on the 25th April, 1915, Sub. Lieut. Tisdall, hearing wounded men on the beach calling for assistance, jumped into the water, and, pushing a boat in front of him, went to their rescue. He was, however, obliged to obtain help, and took with him on two trips, Ldg. Smn. Malia; and on other trips, Ch. P.O. Perring and Ldg. Smn. Curtis and Parkinson. In all, Sub. Lieut. Tisdall made four or five trips between the ship and the shore, and was thus responsible for rescuing several wounded men under heavy and accurate fire. Owing to the fact that Sub. Lieut. Tisdall and the platoon under his orders were on detached service at the time, and that this officer was killed in action on the 6th May, it has only now been possible to obtain complete information as to the individuals who took part in this gallant act. Of these, Ldg. Smn. Fred Curtis, DEV/1899/C, has been missing since the 4th June, 1915." (Since confirmed "missing in action", commemorated on the Helles Memorial)

  1. “For most conspicuous bravery. When in charge of a party consisting of scouts and Royal Engineers engaged in the demolition of the enemy’s wire, this officer displayed great gallantry and disregard of all personal danger. In order to ensure the absolute success of the work entrusted to him, 2nd Lt. Dunville placed himself between an N.C.O. of the Royal Engineers and the enemy’s fire, and, thus protected, the N.C.O. was enabled to complete a work of great importance. 2nd Lt. Dunville, although severely wounded, continued to direct his men in the wire-cutting and general operations until the raid was successfully completed, thereby setting a magnificent example of courage, determination and devotion to duty to all ranks under his command. This gallant officer has since succumbed to his wounds.” –Supplement to The London Gazette, 2 Aug. 1917.
  2. “During the landing from the S.S. `River Clyde’ at V Beach in the Gallipoli Peninsula on the 25th April, 1915, Sub-Lieutenant Tisdall, hearing wounded men on the beach calling for assistance, jumped into the water and, pushing a boat in front of him, went to their rescue. He was, however, obliged to obtain help, and took with him on two trips Leading Seaman Malia and on other trips Chief Petty Officer Perring and Leading Seamen Curtiss and Parkinson. In all Sub-Lieutenant Tisdall made four or five trips between the ship and the shore, and was thus responsible for rescuing several wounded men under heavy and accurate fire.” –Supplement to The London Gazette, 31 March, 1916.
