ChichesterLionelLieutenantHe was killed in action at Middleport Farm, Calvinia, February 6th, 1902. He was the eldest surviving son of Major General Hugh Chichester, Royal Artillery. He was born on July 3rd, 1873, and educated at Charterhouse. Lieutenant Chichester first went out as a trooper with the CIV in July 1900, was present at the battle of Belfast, and then returned with this corps in October 1900, being awarded the medal with three clasps. Anxious, however, to again serve the Empire, and as the war continued, he a second time volunteered, and went out in the Imperial Yeomanry in February 1901, in which he was given a lieutenant's commission. He was attached to the 11th Company of the 3rd Battalion, and served with it till killed. He saw much service on his return to South Africa, first in the Warrenton and Hoopstad districts, and afterwards with Colonel Doran's column. When he fell, a position, which was fiercely attacked by Smut's Commando, had to be held, and few men were available. Sir A Conan Doyle states, "the Yeomen fought like veterans". A ridge was committed to the charge of Lieutenants Chichester and Tabor, with eleven men of the Imperial Yeomanry, their instructions being "to hold it to the death". The order was obeyed with the utmost heroism, both officers and six men being killed, and two wounded. Lieutenant Chichester's name was inscribed on the tablet in the War Memorial Cloister at Charterhouse. (See Lieutenant Tabor)
