ChildeCharles BCaptainHe was killed in action at Sugarloaf Hill, near Trichard's Drift, January 20th, 1900. The eldest son of Mr Childe-Pemberton, of Millichope Hall, Shropshire, he was born in September 1853, and educated at Harrow and Christ's Church, Oxford. He was a keen sportsman. Major Childe discontinued using the name of Pemberton on succeeding to the family estate of Kinlet, Shropshire. He had served in the 57th and 60th Foot in 1874, and entered the Royal Horse Guards in November 1875, being promoted captain, January 1885. His first experience of active service was in the Egyptian Expedition of 1882, when he was present at the battle of Tel-el-Kebir, for which he received the medal, with clasp, and bronze star. He retired from the Royal Horse Guards in 1887, and joined the Shropshire Yeomanry Cavalry. At the outbreak of the war, he proceeded to South Africa, and was given command of a squadron of the South African Light Horse. It is stated that of one troop of thirty men enrolled by him, only one survives, so severe was the fighting and so numerous the engagements in which the South African Light Horse took part. Major Childe was killed while leading his men with great gallantry, and was mentioned in despatches, LG February 8th, 1901, for having rendered "gallant service in the capture of Sugarloaf Hill". He was also mentioned in the despatch of Field Marshal Earl Roberts, of April 2nd, 1901.
