The late Major Clive Collingwood Dangar, M.C., youngest son of the late Mr. A. A. Dangar, of Baroona, Whittingham, N.S.W., was born at Baroona in 1882, and educated at The Armidale School, New England. After holding a commission with the Third Duke of Wellington's West Riding Regiment, with which he served in Africa during the Boer War, being mentioned in despatches, he obtained a commission in the 13th Hussars, and was for some years stationed in India with that regiment. Resigning his commission before the outbreak of the present war, he took up pastoral pursuits at Gostwyck, in the New England district, N.S.W.

At the commencement of 1915 he left for England, and offering his services to his old regiment, the 13th Hussars, carried out training work in England until he was transferred to Egypt and attached to the Australian Mounted Forces. He was actively employed in military operations in Egypt, receiving the Military Cross, and was later severely wounded during the advance in Palestine. He resumed duty with a staff appointment until illness about May last necessitated leaving his work, and after being in hospital for some weeks he was granted leave in order to recuperate in Australia. On arrival in Melbourne it became necessary to remove him to a hospital, where he passed peacefully away in the early hours of Thursday, the 4th inst. He was buried at Waverley Cemetery, Sydney, with full military honours

His wife, who is a daughter of the late Hon. H. C. Dangar, M.L.C., and two daughters survive him.
