GubbinsRichard RollsCaptainGUBBINS, RICHARD ROLLS, Captain, was born 14 December 1868, eldest son of Reverend Richard Shard Gubbins, Rector of Upham, Hants, and of Ellen Rolls, sister of the 1st Baron Llangattock. He was gazetted to the Shropshire Light Infantry 1 March, 1890, becoming Lieutenant 21 December 1891, and Captain 24 June 1899. He served in the South African War, 1899-1902, and was present at operations in the Orange Free State, February to May 1900, including operations at Paardeberg, 17 to 26 February (slightly wounded); actions at Houtnek (Thoba Mountain), Vet River (5 and 6 May) and Zand River; operations in the Transvaal in May and June, 1900, including actions near Johannesburg and Pretoria; operations in the Transvaal, east of Pretoria, July to 29 November 1900; operations in the Transvaal, west of Pretoria, July to 29 November 1900, including actions at Elands River (4 to 16 August); operations in Orange River Colony, May to 29 November 1900, including action at Rhenoster River; operations in Cape Colony, south of Orange River, 1899-1900. He served as Adjutant, 2nd Battalion Shropshire Light Infantry, 11 to 31 May 1902: operations in the Transvaal 30 November 1900 to August 1901, and January to 31 May 1902. He was mentioned in Despatches [London Gazette, 10 September 1901]: received the Queen's Medal with three clasps, the King's Medal with two clasps, and was created a Companion of the Distinguished Service Order [London Gazette, 27 September 1901]: "Richard Rolls Gubbins, Captain, Shropshire Light Infantry. In recognition of services during the operations in South Africa". The Insignia were presented by the King 29 October 1901. Captain Gubbins was Adjutant, Shropshire Light Infantry, 1 April 1902 to 31 March 1905, and Adjutant, Militia, 28 September 1905 to 31 March 1908, and was promoted to Major 17 June 1908. He retired 6 March 1912, and entered the Reserve of Officers. Major Gubbins served in the European War from 1914 as Temporary Lieutenant Colonel and Temporary Colonel, and was mentioned in Despatches. A newspaper report said: "Official news has been received at Old Hall, Rockliffe, that Colonel R R Gubbins, DSO, is missing. Colonel Gubbins, who held a Staff appointment abroad, was recently returning to duty, and the vessel on which he was travelling was sunk. One of the officers on board was not saved, and as Colonel Gubbins is reported missing there is grave reason to fear that he is the officer who has lost his life. Colonel Gubbins, who is 49 years of age, is the eldest son of Reverend Richard Shard Gubbins, Rector of Upham, Hampshire, and his mother was the sister of the 1st Baron Llangattock. In 1902, he married Agnes Edith, eldest daughter of Mr G W Mounsey-Heyshani, of Castletown, and there are two sons. Since his retirement from the Army he has lived at the Old Hall, Rockliffe. He was a very capable man of business, and took an active part in the management of the Castletown estates. His military career was spent in the Shropshire Light Infantry, in which he received his commission in 1890, Captain R C Moutisey-Heysham being a brother officer. He served in the Boer War, in which he gained the DSO, and held the Queen's Medal with three clasps, and the King's Medal with two clasps. He retired from the Army with the rank of Major in 1912, and was placed in the Reserve of Officers. When the present war broke out he rejoined the Army, and was for a time employed on transport duty at Newcastle, subsequently receiving an appointment on the Staff. He was appointed a magistrate for Cumberland in 1913". The report of Colonel Gubbins's death proved to be true. It occurred on 24 January 1918.
