I~i MR. GORDON MERRIMAN (A NYASALAND PLANTER).


The great war continues to exact heavy toll from the flower of British manhood. Of those whose portraits are given here it is only possible to give any details in one or two instances. Lieutenant Champion de Crespigny, of the Queen’s Bays, was a son of Lady Champion de Crespigny, and he married a grand-niece of General Gordon. His mother received a letter of sympathy from Major-General Allenby, the Commander of the Cavalry Division, who therein said : ” I must tell you that he died a hero’s death. The Brigade was hotly engaged, and on the Bays fell the brunt of the fighting on September I. Norman, with a few men, was holding an important tactical point, and he held it till


every man was killed or wounded. No man could have done more: few would have done as much.” Lieutenant-Commander Ernest T. Favell lost his life in the disaster to H.M.S. ” Pathfinder.” Captain Arthur Duncombe Shafto, D.S.O., of the Royal Scots, served with distinction in South Africa throughout the war, and was decorated for conduct at Stormberg on December 1o, 1899. Mr. Gordon Merriman was one of three planters who were killed in the action in Nyasaland, near Karonga, on September 9. They, of course, died for Br,. just as much as the soldiers who have fallen on European soil. Mr. Merriman was a son of Mr. and Mrs. T. Mark Merrimar..
