BIOGRAPHICAL.

LATE CAPT. R. Q. SCOTT.

The many friends of Capt. lt. Quintus Scott, will regret to hear of his death at the front. A private cablegram seat to Peachgrove, Marion, S.A., the home of his wife's parents, was received during the past week, stating that he had been killed in action in France on April 16. Being an Englishman, he entered the 3rd East Surrey Regiment as a lieutenant when 17 years of age. He was eventually promoted to the rank of captain, and retired from the army to come to Australia, where he bought an estate at Nuriootpa, in this state. He left with his wife last July for England, and rejoined his regiment with the rank of lieutenant and shortly afterwards was training troops at Dover. In November five officers were asked for the 20th Royal Fusiliers, and he immediately responded. He was a favourite with every one, a brave, fearless, cheerful, and large-hearted officer, and will be sadly missed. In August, 1914, he married Blanche, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Western, of Marion, South Australia, in whose care she left her little son. Shortly before the death of her husband Mrs. Scott left England for Australia, and has yet to learn the sad news.
