Captain The Hon. Fergus Bowes-Lyon (April 18, 1889 - September 27, 1915) was a brother of Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother.

He was born at Glamis Castle in Forfarshire and educated at Eton College, Berkshire. Just a fortnight after the start of World War I, he married Lady Christian Norah Dawson-Damer, daughter of the 5th Earl of Portarlington. Ten months later, she bore him a daughter, Rosemary Lusia, on 18 July 1915.

In the First World War he served with the 8th Battalion, Black Watch and was killed in the opening stages of the Battle of Loos. Leading an attack on the German lines, his leg was blown off by a barrage of German artillery and he fell back into his sergeant's arms. Bullets struck him in the chest and shoulder and he died on the field. He is commemorated on the Loos Memorial.

His mother, Cecilia Bowes-Lyon, Countess of Strathmore and Kinghorne, was severely affected by the loss of her son, and after his death became an invalid withdrawn from public life until the marriage of her daughter Elizabeth to the future king in 1923.
