Forrest, Donald Louis (1893–1915)

Donald Forrest (a nephew of Sir. John and Lady Forrest) was another old boy who laid down his life for his country. He had the misfortune to fall a victim to pneumonia before he reached the trenches. He was one of the best runners we ever had; he kept goal for us in the first eighteen at football; he was a champion swimmer of the public schools and was a universal favourite.
