ConnorFrederick HenryCaptainHe died of wounds received in action at the battle of Talana Hill, October 20th, 1899. He was the son of Lieutenant Colonel Connor, was born May 1862, and educated at Cheltenham College and Wellington (where he was in the Combermere and Lynedoch). He joined the Devonshire Regiment from the Militia May 1884, being transferred to the Royal Irish Fusiliers in October of the same year, and was promoted Captain August 1891. He served in the Waziristan Expedition under Sir William Lockhart in August 1895, as Transport Officer. He was adjutant from September 16th, 1899, of his battalion, which landed at Durban on October 12th, 1899. He fell while rushing forward and leading some of his men. They had been lining a wall parallel to the main position on Talana Hill. Sir A Conan Doyle thus describes it "The air was so full of bullets that it seemed impossible to live on the other side of this shelter. Out of the huddled line of crouching men an officer sprang, shouting, and a score of soldiers vaulted over the wall, and followed at his heels. It was Captain Connor, of the Irish Fusiliers, but his personal magnetism carried up with him some of the Rifles, as well as the men of his own command. He and half of his little forlorn hope were struck down, he, alas, to die the same night". Captain Connor is buried at Dundee, and a cross has been erected to his memory by his brother officers. His name was inscribed on the Eleanor Cross War Memorial at Cheltenham College. (See Lieutenant Colonel Gunning)
