ChisholmeJohn JamesColonelHe was killed in action at the battle of Elandslaagte, October 21st, 1899. He was the only son of J Scott Chisholme of Stirches, by his marriage with Margaret, eldest daughter of Robert Walker of Mumrells, Stirling. Colonel Scott Chisholme was born in August 1851 at Stirches, and educated at Loretto School, Musselburgh, and Repton. He joined the 9th Lancers in January 1872, was promoted Captain March 1878, brevet Major March 1881, and Major December 1884. He was transferred to the 5th Lancers in May 1889, being promoted Lieutenant Colonel August 1894, and brevet Colonel August 1898. He served with the 9th Lancers in the Afgan War of 1878-80, and was present at the capture of Ali Musjid, in the affair at Siah Sung (severely wounded), and the operations around Kabul in December 1879 (wounded). He was mentioned in despatches, LG, May 4th, 1880, receiving the brevet of Major, and the medal with two clasps. He held the appointment of Military Secretary to Lord Connemara, when Governor of Madras for nearly three years. On leaving the 5th Lancers in 1899, Colonel Chisholme was permitted to raise a regiment of Imperial Light Horse, composed mainly of refugees from the Transvaal. This he brought in a few weeks to a state of great efficiency, and it was while leading them into action at Elandslaagte that Colonel Scott Chisholme met his death. At the time he was hit he was cheering and waving his men forward with a coloured sash, and was in the act of assisting a wounded man. He was first wounded in the leg and through the lung, a third shot piercing his brain. His last words were "my fellows are doing very well". He was mentioned in despatches by General Sir George White, December 20th, 1899, LG, February 8th, 1901. Colonel Chisholme was the last in the male line of an ancient border family. A tablet was erected at Stirches by his brother officers and countrymen in grateful remembrance of his gallantry and devotion. (See Captain C F MacCartie).
