Our portraits include this week that of Brig.-Gen. Julian Hasler, who had seen much service in India and Africa, being severely wounded in the South African War, mentioned in despatches, and received both medals, with six clasps. Lieut.-Col. Herbert Carington Smith was killed in the Dardanelles. He fought with distinction in Egypt and South Africa (both medals, with seven clasps). Curiously, he had a presentiment that he would lose his life in the present war. Lieut.-Col. Doughty-Wylie, C.B., C.M.G., was serving on the Staff of General Sir Ian Hamilton when he fell. He had a distinguished record of service in India, Egypt, etc., and during the massacre of Armenians by Turks at Adana saved thousands of lives by his courage and capacity. Lieut.-Col. Archibald S. Koe received medal with clasp for services on the Chin-Lushai Expedition, 1889-9o, and a second medal and clasp for the operations at Chitral in r895. and Lieut. J. R. Wallace was the son of Mr. Roger W.


Wallace, K.C., and was a Rugby and Oxford man. His C.O. said of him that his pluck and unselfishness after being hit will always be remembered. Lieut.-Col. G. H. Shaw, V.D.. was the first Territorial officer to be killed in action. 2nd Lieut. Alan Maurice Eustace Swabey came of a family of soldiers. His great-grandfather fought under Wellington at Waterloo, and an ancestor was an officer in the great Duke of Marlborough’s army in Slanders. Lieut. Geoffrey Elliot Blackett was the only son of Lieut.-Col. and Mrs. Blackett, of Acorn Close, Sacriston, near Durham. He received his commission three years ago in the 8th Durham Light Infantry, of which his father was in command. 2nd Lieut. H. Eardley Pinhey was only nineteen. He was the eldest son of Mr. John C. Pinhey, Royal Canadian Academician, of Wolfenden, Hudson Heights, Canada. 2nd Lieut. Norman Sawers Scott, then in the O.T.C., won a Cup for general efficiency.
