ChildersRobert ErskineHe was born in Jun 1870 in London but raised as an orphan in Wicklow, Ireland. He was educated at Cambridge and started work as a clerk at the House of Commons between 1895 to 1910. During the Boer War, he served as an officer of the City Imperial Volunteers, Honourable Artillery Company and was invalided home after being wounded. He wrote 'In the ranks of the CIV'. He was responsible for volume 5 of the 'Times' History of the War in South Africa'. He was the author of 'The Riddle of the Sands' (1903) which predicted war with Germany and was based on his own sailing trips around the coast of Germany. It was also one of the first modern spy stories. Churchill later credited it with causing the establishment of naval bases at Scapa Flow, the Firth of Forth and at Invergordon. He also wrote two books on cavalry warfare based on his experiences, War and the Arme Blanche (1910) and the German Influence on British Cavalry (1911). Both books were critical of the British Army. he volunteered for naval service in August 1914 and was commissioned in the RNVR. He was awarded the DSC and promoted to Lieutenant Commander in 1916. Despite being a Protestant, he was convinced of the need for Irish Home Rule and devoted himself to this cause from around 1910 when he resigned from the House of Commons. The Easter Rising angered him and he moved to Dublin. In 1919 he was made Director of Publicity for the First Irish Parliament and represented the Irish Nationalists at the Versailles Peace Conference and was a member of the delegation that negotiated the Anglo-Irish Treaty with Britain (1921). As a result of his opposition to the Treaty, he was branded a traitor by both the pro-Treaty Irish and the British. He was arrested and shot as a traitor in Dublin on 24 November 1922.City Imperial Volunteers
