Harrogate Herald - 1st August 1917

Roll of Honour

Doctor W D Jefferson has received the following telegram from the Admiralty : "Deeply regret to inform you Lieutenant Ingleby S Jefferson killed in action 21st inst.; letter follows".

Lieutenant Ingleby Stuart Jefferson, RN, who was 24 years of age, was educated at Aysgarth School, and received his early training for the navy on 11 HMS Conway, passing out first. After two years at Dartmouth he was for six months as cadet on HMS Cumberland, then midshipman on HMS Shannon, and also HMS Duke of Edinburgh at Alexandretta. He obtained the Humane Society's medal for saving a sailor's life, and was made full lieutenant in 1915. He was a very good all-round athlete, and played football in the navy team versus the Army team at Queen's Club on March 7th, 1914. Much sympathy is expressed throughout Ripon and district with Dr & Mrs Jefferson in the great loss they have sustained.
