J.
A.
INGLIS.
The death has occurred in Edinburgh of Mr. John Alexander
Inglis, K.C., of Auchindinny and Redhall, the King's and Lord
Treasurer's Remembrancer in Scotland.
He was the eldest son of the late Dr. Alexander Inglis, of
Montpellier Lawn , Cheltenham, and a brother of Prof.
C.
E. Inglis,
O.B.E., LL.D., F.RS., the famous Cambridge engineer.
For six years he was at Cheltenham College, where he won the
Walker and Jex Blake prizes, and was Silver Medallist. He went
with a scholarship to Christ Church, Oxford, and then to Edinburgh
University, where he was Lord Rector's Prizeman in
1'898,
the year in
which he was admitted to the Scottish Bar.
He was Brigadier in the Royal Company of Archers (King's
Body Guard for Scotland). From
1914-1919
he was chairman of the
Cohnton School Board; from
1918
to
1920
ASSistant Commissioner
for Food Control; and since
1925
he had been a trustee of the
National Library of Scotland.
ROGER LATHAM WADDY.
Southwood,
1935-1939.
Roger Waddy joined the Fleet Air Arm RN.V.R while at
Cambridge and was commissioned Midshipman in May 1941.
In
July he was killed in action, aged 19 years. At Southwood he played
for his house XV, and became a house prefect; he was a sergeant in
the O.T.C. But his chief interest was in rowing: he won the Lowe
Sculls in
1939,
and rowed in the College boat that year; and, while
at Sidney Sussex, Cambridge, he won the Freshman's Sculls. For his
last two years at College he was in 6 Science and it was then that I
knew him and I came to know a rueful expression into which
cheerfulness would keep breaking, and the high spirits and happiness
which filled his life.
Roger Waddy was the son of the late Captain A. H. Waddy of
Croxton , Staffs., and of Mrs.
Field-~ichards,
and stepson of Squadron
Leader P. J .
Field-~ichards,
The Old Cottage, Bransgrove, Hants.;
he was engaged to be married to the Hon. Barbara Barclay-Bishop.
To them in their sorrow we extend our sympathy.
