THOSE WHO MADE THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE
SECOND MATABELE WAR 1896-97 – this war broke out on 29 March 1896 and Samuel Kenneth MacKenzie (1880-82) was sadly one of the first to die on 6 April 1896, at Shiloh, Matabeleland. He was in Gifford’s Patrol and was only 27 when he died.
BRITISH CENTRAL AFRICA 1897
– Lt Colonel Charles Augustus Edwards (1873-74) greatly distinguished himself during the last 5 years of his life by fighting operations against the slave traders in Africa. The warlike Yao tribesmen thought he had magical properties! At the age of 32 was the youngest Lt Colonel in the Indian Army. He died of Blackwater Fever in Zomba, Malawi at the age of 33 and his brother officers erected the earliest memorial in the Chapel.
BOER WAR 1899-1902
– this lists the 10 OFs who lost their lives during the 2nd Boer War (sometimes known as the South African War). Amazingly you will see that 40% of them died from Enteric Fever (Typhoid) rather than in action.
WORLD WAR ONE – this lists all those OFs and masters/staff who lost their lives fighting in World War 1. For the vast majority of those listed, there are links to further information on them including a photo of their grave or memorial.
IRISH REBELLION 1919-1921 – at the present time I have only identified Major James Seafield Grant (1901-04) as having given his life in this conflict in 1921.
WORLD WAR TWO – this lists all those OFs and a master who lost their lives fighting in World War 2. For some of those listed, there are links to further information on them.
KOREAN WAR 1950-53 – at the present time I have not identified any OF as having given his life in this conflict. If you know otherwise, please let me know.
SUBSEQUENT OPERATIONS – at the present time I have only identified Flight Lt Jack Rochford Maulden (R33-38) , Flight Lt Daniel Mann (R56-63) and Officer Cadet Karen Buttenshaw (V86-93)
as having given their lives while on service duty. Just before Christmas an oak plaque was put up in the College Chapel. It is on the pillar on the left hand side closest to the altar and records their names and details – see HERE
. Also remembered in the College Chapel is Richard Roger Atter (G57-65)
who tragically died off the coast of Germany in 1968, when he fell overboard from the training sailing vessel Leopard.
