ChalmersT W ChalmersCaptainHe was killed in action near Belfast, November 1900. He was educated at the Royal Military College, Kingston, Canada, and was a Lieutenant in the Reserve of Officers. He had previously served in the North-West of Canada in the rebellion of 1885, being granted the medal. For eight years he was an Inspector of the North-West Mounted Police. Captain Chalmers saw much service in the South African War near Bothaville, Nooitgedacht, and Belfast. At the latter battle he was with an advanced guard under Major Saunders, who, during the fight, was wounded. Captain Chalmers went to his assistance, although Major Saunders implored him not to come to him under such a heavy fire. He, however, did so, and was killed. He was commended by Major General Smith-Dorrien for his bravery, who "deplored the death of this splendid officer". Captain Chalmers was mentioned in General Lord Kitchener's despatch of March 8th, 1901, for "his gallantry and stubborn fighting". He was buried at Belfast, Transvaal.
