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’. He came to Winchester from Horris Hill and in 1895 left 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 November 5th 1917, from the effects of gas poisoning sustained three days before near St. Julien. Major Mallock married in 1906 Miss Iris Bazley-White and left four children.
