Our portraits on this page include that of Lieut. Robert Owen Bristowe, an old Carthusian, killed in action at Neuve Chapelle. znd Lieut. Bernard F. G. Berrill was educated at Beaumont College, Old Windsor, where he was captain of the school. He was described as “absolutely without fear ” in action. 2nd Lieut. Fritz Portrnore Crawhall was the younger son of the Rev. E. L. and Mrs. Crawhall, of Herriard Vicarage, Basingstoke. In addition to winning distinction as a scholar at Winchester College and at Merton College, Oxford, he was winner of the Senior Rowing Pairs last year at Winchester. Lieut.-Colonel F. D. Farquhar was on the personal staff of H.R.H. the Duke of Connaught, and his death has caused widespread regret in Ottawa. Tributes to his zeal and popularity


as Military Secretary to the Governor-General were paid by Sir Robert Borden, In the House of Commons, Ottawa, and by Sir Wilfrid Laurier, who also expressed his pleasure at the news which had been received of the good work done by the Canadian Contingent at the front. In a letter from Lieut.-Colonel Farquhar, received almost simultaneously with news of his death, he referred to the ” great spirit and dash ” shown in an attack led by Lieuts. Crabbe and Papineau. Lieut. Stephen de Thierry Williamson was only eighteen. He was the son of Mrs. Williamson, of Queen Margaret Crescent, Glasgow. His great-grandfather, the Chevalier de Thierry, fought against Napoleon at Waterloo, and was acting as a despatch-rider during the famous battle.
