BlairHugh MaxwellCaptainHe was killed in action at Koodoosburg, February 7th, 1900.  He was the eldest son of Alexander Blair, Advocate Sheriff of the Lothians and Peebles.  He was born in 1872, educated at Edinburgh Academy, also Sedbergh School, and at the latter was in his school football team.  He entered the Seaforth Highlanders from the Royal Military College (passing out first), in 1891, being promoted Lieutenant 1894, and Captain November 1899.  Captain Blair served with the 2nd battalion with the Chitral Relief Expedition of 1895, and was present in the engagement at Mamugai, receiving the medal with clasp.  He was employed for a short time with the West African Frontier Force.  At Koodoosburg, his carotid artery was cut by a bullet from a shrapnel shell and some of the men of his company took it in turns to press the artery, hoping thus to prevent loss of blood and to save his life, but their efforts, although continued for some hours, proved unavailing.
