Francis John Dobree Knowling, MC, Captain, Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders. Francis was the younger Son of Dr. and Mrs. Ernest M. Knowling, of North Bay House, Tenby. He was educated at St. Andrews, Tenby and at Cheltenham College, and sat an Agricultural Course at Harper Adams College, Shropshire, which led to him being employed at Lord Rendlesham's Estate in Suffolk. When war broke out, Francis enlisted in the Kings Shropshire Light Infantry, and on 22 September 1914 was commissioned into the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, and was posted to their 10th Battalion, attached to 27 Brigade, 9th (Scottish) Division. He moved to France with the Division in May 1915, and they fought at the Battle of Loos in September, where Francis was gazetted Captain, and was awarded the Military Cross for distinguished service in the field during June 1916. The Division were now at the Somme, and fought through most of the Somme Offensive, as well as the March 1917 Arras Offensive and at Third Ypres and the Battle of Cambrai. At sometime in 1917 Francis was wounded whilst serving on the Staff at Brigade Headquarters. After six months recuperating at home, he was passed fit for Home Service and was attached to an Officer Cadet Battalion at Crookham, Fleet as an Instructor but he must have become bored, and in January 1918 volunteered to return to his old Battalion at the front. Sadly Francis was soon killed in action, on 8 March 1918, at Ypres. He was 26 years old and is buried at Canada Farm Cemetery, Belgium.
