Deuchar, Bettine (1916–1940)

Major Derek Deuchar, of Northumberland (Eng), and his wife, who was formerly Miss Bettine Fisken, of Melbourne, were killed in one of the earlier air raids while motoring in Scotland.

They leave a daughter, Deirdre, who was five months old at the time of her parents' deaths. She will remain in England with Major Deuchar's family. As both Major Deuchar and his wife were "only" children, this little girl is the sole survivor of two families.

Mrs. Deuchar, whose marriage took place in England on April 9, 1938, was the daughter of the late Mr. Cecil H. Fisken, solicitor, of Melbourne, and of Mrs. Fisken, who is at present in Sydney.

Mr. Fisken's father, the late Archibald Fisken, of Ballarat, was a well-known business man, who conducted the stock and station agency that bore his name.
