BlandyRobert ActonCaptainHe was killed in action near Molteno, November 22nd, 1901.  He was the eldest son of Adam Fettiplace Blandy of the Warren, Abingdon, was born in March 1870, and educated at Clifton College.  Captain Blandy, who had been articled to Foster and Browne, mining engineers, at Cardiff, went to Cape Colony in December 1896, to take charge of collieries at Molteno, where he was very successful.  On the outbreak of the war he joined the Frontier Mounted Rifles as Lieutenant, and first served with Major General Sir W F Gatacre's column and afterwards with Major General Brabant, being present at many engagements in the NE of Cape Colony.  He was killed while reconnoitring in the Bamboo mountains.  Captain Blandy had dismounted near some rocks where it was believed some Boers were concealed.  He rushed forward calling on his men to "come on as they are sure to run".  Lieutenant King, who was with him, was wounded, and while going to assist him, Captain Blandy was mortally wounded at about 15 to 20 yards range.  Lieutenant General French telegraphed greatly regretting Captain Blandy's death, and stating "he has done excellent service, we are much indebted to him".  Captain Blandy was buried at Molteno.  His grave was in a corner of the cemetery there, near that of Captain de Montmorency.
