BlackburnLeslie DewingCaptainHe died of wounds received in action at Crocodile's Poort, October 22nd, 1899.  He was born on June 29th, 1865, and educated at Clifton.  He entered the Scottish Rifles on August 23rd, 1884; was adjutant from November 1891 to November 1895, and promoted Captain April 16th, 1894.  When scouting with six of his men on the northern frontier of the Transvaal, in thick bush, he found his small force in the presence of a considerable Boer commando.  His party concealed themselves, but Captain Blackburn's foot was noticed by the enemy, and a sudden volley was fired, wounding him mortally.  His companions remained with him and succeeded in driving off the Boers.  Captain Blackburn had sufficient strength left to dictate his report of the action and then leant back and died.
