Stirling, Norman William (1861–1916)

Mr. Norman William Stirling, formerly a well-known resident of Adelaide, has been killed at Dar-es-Salaam, the chief sea-port of German East Africa. Mr. Norman William Stirling was a son of the late Hon. Edward Stirling and the youngest brother of Sir Lancelot Stirling and Professor Stirling. He was a native of South Australia, but as an infant was taken to England, where he was educated. He spent the greater part of his life in this state, and was largely interested in pastoral pursuits. Some years ago he returned to London, and from there he went to Africa, where as a member of General Botha's Horse he took part in the war in German East Africa. He left a widow and three daughters all of whom are in London. Mr Stirling was well known in sporting circles.
