Killed at Sequehart, 8th October, 1918. Son of Mr. John Albert Compston, K.C., and Mrs. Compston. He was twice at the Front, returning after six weeks with trench fever. He had only been back at the Front for 10 days when he fell in the first engagement. His C.O. wrote:- "I and all my officers deplore the loss of so valuable and gallant a young officer. Although he had only been with us a very short time, his Company Commander spoke very highly of him, and he became a great favourite among the other officers from the beginning. It was my good fortune to meet him shortly before the battalion went into action, and it was very largely due to his bravery, initiative and resource, that this action was so successful."
