Parbury, Frederick Nigel (1879–1915)

Major Frederick Nigel Parbury, recently killed in action, was the eldest son of the late Mr. F. A. Parbury, of Satur, Scone, and was 35 years of age. The latter portion of his life (about fifteen years) had been spent in the British Army. He was an ardent polo player, a sportsman on the field of play, and a fine fellow in private life. On the outbreak of the Boer War, he joined the 20th Battery (artillery), and remained with this battery throughout. In India he had several years' service to his credit. At the outbreak of the present struggle, with the 20th Battery still under his command, he crossed to Europe with the Imperial Indian Forces, and served in the fighting around La Bassee.
