CathcartReginaldCaptainHe was killed in the operations on the Tugela, February 22nd, 1900. He was the fourth son of Earl Cathcart, was born November 1870, and educated at Eton. He entered the King's Royal Rifle Corps from the Royal Military College in November 1891, being promoted Lieutenant January 1895, and Captain January 25th, 1900. Captain Cathcart, who was known by Green Jackets as "Reggie" Cathcart, left many to mourn for him. He was an athlete and sportsman. In 1896, a team of his battalion, trained and led by him, won at Aldershot the shield presented by HRH the Duke of Connaught, for an obstacle race. Fifteen Regimental teams, each of 106 officers and men, armed and accoutred, competed, Captain Cathcart held the post of Superintendent of Gymnasia, at Malta, from November 1896, to March 1899, where he was well known. He belonged to the 4th Battalion, but volunteered for active service with the 3rd Battalion, and proceeded to South Africa in November 1899. He was present at the battle of Colenso, where his old school friend, "Freddy" Roberts, King's Royal Rifle Corps, fell, and he was one of six brother officers who carried him to his grave at Chieveley. Captain Cathcart was also at the action at Potgieter's Drift. At Spion Kop the 3rd King's Royal Rifle Corps attacked the two peaks on the north of that position, the right half battalion took the Sugarloaf hill and the left half battalion captured the centre hill of the range. Though lame, and suffering from abscess in the foot, Captain Cathcart, with his company, led the left half battalion up the precipitous hill, and they were the first to gain the summit. An account of this attack will be found in despatches published in the LG, February 8th, 1901, page 951, where "F Company leading under Captain Cathcart" is specially referred to. Captain Cathcart was also present at the various actions round Cingolo Hill. Having crossed the Tugela on the pitch dark night of February 22nd, he was killed by a random shot, which struck him in the forehead, during a charge with fixed swords. The scene of action, Green Hill, is west of Pieters Station, about three miles due north of Colenso. A marble obelisk marked the position. It bears this inscription: "In memory of officers, non commissioned officers, and riflemen, 3rd Batt, King's Royal Rifle Corps, who were killed in action at this spot, February 22nd and 23rd, 1900. They formed part of picquets which drove off the enemy's attack and held this ridge all night, in spite of determined efforts to dislodge them". Beneath this inscription appear the names of Captain the Honourable R Cathcart, Sergeant J Flower, and twenty riflemen.
