THE TIMES: 20.10.1915
FALLEN OFFICERS


Lieutenant Alan Tompson, 4th Grenadier Guards, who was killed on September 27, was the second son of Mr John Arthur Tompson, of Dromenagh, Iver Heath. He was educated at Charterhouse and Trinity, Cambridge, where he took a scholarship and several distinctions. He was well-known in British East Africa, having gone there 11 years ago and taken up land. He was one of the first to see the great possibilities of that country. He served for six months in the East Afican Mounted Rifles before returning to England, where he joined the Grenadier Guards, going to France two months later.

Note:
Married Gladys Bullough, of Meggernie Castle, Glen Lyon.
