Chenevix-TrenchChristopher2nd LieutenantHe died of enteric, at Heilbron, on April 13th, 1902. He was the son of Colonel and Mrs Chenevix-Trench, of Broomfield, Camberley, and was born in April 1881. He was educated at Marlborough, where he gained the Modern School Exhibition, tenable for two years at the Royal Military Academy, Woolwich, which he entered direct from Marlborough. At the Royal Military Academy he was senior under officer, and won the Victoria and Pollock medals, and the sword of honour. 2nd Lieutenant Chenevix-Trench entered the Royal Engineers January 1900, and went to South Africa in February 1901, where he was employed in the construction of block-houses. On one occasion, near Boshof, in order to get reinforcements, he made a daring ride to give the required information with the most successful results. He was with a column returning to Boshof from Windsorton Road, which had halted at Tweefontein, and he asked permission to accompany a small party which were being sent out to drive off some Boers. This party went about five miles and was nearly surrounded at Hartbeestpan Farm by the enemy, who were found in considerable force. The officer in command then called for someone to return to Tweefontein to get assistance. 2nd Lieutenant Chenevix-Trench volunteered for the duty. To get back involved passing through a gap in a wire fence and through a wood now partly occupied by the enemy. He reached the gap safely, the Boers close behind and firing at him. He then galloped through the wood, many Boers trying to cut him off and still firing at him, some within 20 paces distance. He, however, reached the camp safely, reinforcements were sent, and the party extricated. 2nd Lieutenant Trench died on the eve of his twenty first birthday. His name was inscribed on a tablet which has been placed in Marlborough College Chapel in memory of all Marlburians who fell in the war.
