The names of the following missing officers were incorrectly given in previous lists :—

MORRITT, Lieut. W. G., East Surrey Regt.

Great regret will be caused among all connected with the Gordon Highlanders by
the news that Colonel William Engleson Gordon. V.C., is one of the missing.
He served in Chitral and Tirah, including the charge at Dargai,
and won the V.C. at Krugersdorp in the Transvaal, saving the guns.
He was at the depot at Aberdeen a year or two ago , and in command
of the 75th at Plymouth early this year.

Captain Duncombe-Shafto, of the Royal Scots Lothian Regiment. killed in action,
was one of two sons of a Durham Councillor, both of whom served in the Boer War.

A non-commissioned officer of the Duke of Wellington's Regiment who has
returned home after exciting experiences at Mons and elsewhere, says that
Captain E. V. Jenkins. D.S.O., who is reported missing, was attacked by
sunstroke when retiring, and was left at a house in care of Belgians.
