Gurdon-RebowMartinLieutenantHe was killed in a patrol engagement near Hanover Road September 16th, 1901. He was the only son of H J Gurdon-Rebow of Wyvenhoe Park, Essex, was born February 1875, and educated at Eton. He entered the Grenadier Guards from the 3rd Battalion Hampshire Regiment, being promoted Lieutenant December 1898. Lieutenant Gurdon-Rebow served in the Soudan campaign under Lord (then Sir Herbert) Kitchener in 1898, and was present at the battle of Khartoum, receiving the British medal and Khedive's medal with clasp. He went to South Africa with his regiment from Gibraltar in October 1899, joining the Kimberley Relief Force, and was present at the action at Belmont, where he was wounded. Recovering however in time, he was present at the Battle of Modder River and afterwards saw much service during the war. The day he was killed Lieutenant Gurdon-Rebow was in charge of a patrol of Grenadier Guards, and Lieutenant General Lord Kitchener in referring to his death says "I must also make allusion to the very gallant stand made on September 16th by nine men of the 3rd Battalion Grenadier Guards, under Lieutenant M Gurdon-Rebow, who found themselves attacked by some thirty to forty of the enemy near Cyferkuil, ten miles north of Riet Siding". A summons to surrender was refused by Lieutenant Gurdon-Rebow and he and one man were killed and two others dangerously wounded. The sergeant of the patrol was drowned in a gallant attempt to swim the Carolus River in order to get assistance. Lieutenant Gurdon-Rebow was mentioned in despatches for special bravery in the action in which he fell. He was buried in De Aar cemetery. A white marble cross was erected by his brother officers over his grave, which was also enclosed with a white marble curbing.
