CarrE ELieutenant ColonelEdward Elliott Carr was born on 31 May 1854, son of Deputy Surgeon-General JK Carr MD R.A. He was educated privately and entered the Army in 1873, being appointed to the Royal Scots Fusiliers. He served with the 2nd battalion on the NW Frontier of India 1897-98, including the action at the Ublan Pass on 27 Aug 1897 and in Tirah, in the operations against the Khani Khel Chamkanis. He commanded the 2nd battalion in South Africa from 23 Nov 1899, and was present at the Relief of Ladysmith, including the operations of 17 to 24 Jan and 5 to 7 Feb 1900, and action at Vaal Krantz; operations on the Tugela Heights, and the action at Pieter's Hill where, leading his regiment in the final attack, he was severely wounded. The heavy losses incurred by the regiment at this action, together with those of the Irish and Dublin Fusiliers, all part of Barton's Fusilier Brigade, were tempered by the fact that the capture of Pieter's Hill resulted directly in the relief of Ladysmith. Colonel Carr was mentioned in General Buller's despatches; as was Sergeant-Major Steele for "conspicuous coolness and devotion in building up stone sangars under heavy cross-fire round Lieutenant Colonel Carr, who was lying wounded, and protecting his commanding officer until he was removed after dark". Steele was subsequently awarded the Distinguished Conduct Medal. After recovering from his wounds, Colonel Carr resumed command of his regiment and took part in the actions at Frederickstad, later being appointed Commandant of that town. For his services in South Africa he was created a Companion of the Bath. During the Great War Colonel Carr served at home as Assistant Adjutant and Quarter-Master General of the Lowland Division in 1914, and as Inspector of the Lines of Communications, 1914-15. He went to France in 1915 where he Commanded No.16 Base Depôt and, from 1916 to 1918, he Commanded Reinforcements in France. He was mentioned in despatches by the Secretary of State for War in Feb 1917; by Field Marshal Sir Douglas Haig in Dec 1917, and created a CBE in 1919. Colonel Carr died at Sidmouth, Devon, on 18 May 1926.
