Stirling, Edward Guy (1884–1945)

Mr. Edward Guy Stirling, who died yesterday in the South Coast District Hospital after a short illness, was the eldest son of Lady Stirling, of Victor Harbor, and the late Sir Lancelot Stirling, KCMG, who was President of the Legislative Council for some years.

He was a qualified architect, and served with the Grenadier Guards in the first world war. He came to Australia after the war and was recognised as one of the outstanding country golfers in the State. He had few equals in Australia as a putter.

The late Mr. Stirling built a house about five years ago at Victor Harbor on the Hayborough estate, and lived in retirement. He was single.
