BalfourChristopher EgertonLieutenantBALFOUR, CHRISTOPHER EGERTON, Lieutenant, was born 14 August 1872, son of Archibald Balfour, of 65, Pont Street, London. He was educated at Westminster, and at the Royal Military College, Sandhurst, and entered the King's Royal Rifle Corps 24 May 1893, becoming Lieutenant 1 January 1896. He went to India with his regiment, and they had just arrived in Calcutta when orders came for them to leave at once for South Africa. They stayed only long enough to change into another ship, and during part of the South African War of 1899 to 1902, Lieutenant Balfour was Aide-de-Camp to Sir Neville Lyttelton. He was in Ladysmith during the Siege, and the starvation and hardships he then endured completely wrecked his constitution so that he never recovered, and he died 29 August 1907. His DSO was awarded [LG 27 September 1901]: "Christopher Egerton Balfour, Lieutenant, KRRC. For services in South Africa". He married, in 1902, Dorothy Cecilia, eldest daughter of Gerald Paget, and they had two daughters, one of whom was born after her father's death.
