"Captain Guy Wellesley Eaton, Royal Irish Fusiliers, was killed fighting on September 7.He was educated at St. Andrew's College, Dublin, and Cowbridge Grammer School, South Wales, and was about to graduate in science at London University when the war broke out.He thereupon joined the Dublin University O.T.C., and was gazetted second Lieutenant in the Royal Irish Fusiliers.He was promoted captain in February, 1915.On July 11 last, having specially distinguished himself in the field, he had the honour to receive a certificate on vellum in the following terms from his divisional general:- "I have read with much pleasure the reports of your regimental commander and brigade commander regarding your gallant conduct and devotion to duty in the field on July 11, 1916, and have ordered your name and deed to be entered in the record of the Irish Division."For the following act of gallantry, during a raid on the enemy's trenches, Captain Eaton was awarded the Military Cross:- "His party met with great difficulty in crossing the enemy's wire, but he himself, with a sergeant, entered their front line.He shot two of the enemy with his revolver.On his return, hearing that another officer had been wounded and was missing, he went out and helped to bring him in under heavy fire."His colonel, writing to Mrs. Eaton, his mother, says:- "I cannot tell you what a splendid soldier he was.He was most popular with officers and men alike, and his chief thoughts were for the welfare of his men and the regiment. . . .At the time he received his wound he was holding a very difficult part of the line, and he succeeded in preventing the enemy making any appreciable advance."Captain Eaton, who had just passed his 26th birthday, was the third son ofthe late R.A. Eaton, and grandson of R.J. Eaton, R.M.His mother is a daughter of Mr. Thomas Tighe Mecredy."
