Major / Royal Field Artillery

1878 - 1917

Charles Herbert Mallock was born 15 May 1878, the eldest son of Richard Mallock, M.P., J.P., D.L., of Cockington Court, Torquay, and one of three Wykehamist brothers; the others, from his father’s second marriage, were Roger Champerdowne Mallock (C1895-1899) and Rawlyn Richard Maconchy Mallock (C1898-1904), ‘inventor of an electrical machine for solving systems of linear algebraic equations’.

Charles came to Winchester in September 1891 from Horris Hill. He was in C House, Du Boulay's. He won a prize for Natural Science in 1893 but otherwise passed through the school very quietly. He left Winchester in December 1895 for Woolwich, being gazetted in 1897 to the Royal Field Artillery. In 1907, he resigned his commission and settled on the family estate at Torquay. He was called up from the reserve at the beginning of the war and went to France almost immediately with 115 Battery, RFA, and remained there till his death, receiving the D.S.O. and being twice mentioned in Despatches.

He died at Proven on 5 November 1917, from the effects of gas poisoning sustained three days before near St. Julien. Major Mallock married Iris Bazley-White in Oct 1906 and left four children. One son, John Rawley Charles Mallock, came to Winchester in 1922 as a War Exhibitioner.
