Our portraits include that of Brig.-Gen. Charles FitzClarence, who was killed in action at Ypres. His father, the late Captain the Hon. George FitzClarence, R.N., was the third son of the first Earl of Munster. Brig.-Gen. FitzClarence served with distinction in South Africa, taking part in the defence of Mafeking, and his daring won for him the sobriquet of ” The Demon.” It was there he won his V.C. by three acts of valour : relieving an armoured train under a furious fire and saving his handful of men by his skill: leading an attack on Boer trenches in a night sortie and himself killing four of the eneny ; and displaying great courage at the action at Game Tree, where he was shot through both legs. He was married, in 1898, to Violet, daughter of the late Lord


Alfred Spencer Churchill, and leaves a son and a daughter. Lieut. C. H. Dundas was the youngest son of Sir George and Lady Dundas, of Dunira, Coimre, Perthshire, and died of wounds received at Ypres. Captain Norman Fraser, D.S.O., was son of the late Colonel G. L. Fraser and Mrs. Fraser, Kirkside, St. Cyrus, Kincardineshire. He served in the South African War, and was awarded the D.S.O., the Queen’s medal, with four clasps, and the King’s medal, with two clasps. Lieut. Robert Stirling was the eldest son of Lieut.-Commander T. W. Stirling, R.N. Lieut. V. T. T. Rea was the first student of Trinity College, Dubhn, to fall in the war. Lieut. C. Gordon Mackenzie was the second son of Mr. H. Gordon Mackenzie, of Toronto, Canada.
