PostSubject: FREDERICK JOHN DURRANT SCOTT,   Tue Mar 09, 2010 9:56 pm

Son of Mr. D. B. Scott, one of the early settlers in the Colony, was born at Pietermaritzburg on the 19th April, 1851. He was a foundation boy of the High School, and
continued there until 1866, when he occupied the second place in the school, and then left to finish his education at Godolphin School, Hammersmith. There he not only
passed through his curriculum with much credit, but disguished himself in athletic exercises — in 1868 winning a medal as the best athlete in the school, and in the same
year the average bat. In after years he maintained this character, and was ever distinguished for his prowess in sports. Returning to the Colony, he first filled the position
of a clerk in a merchant's office, and subsequently became a partner in the firm of Messrs. Mason & Scott. He joined the Natal Carbineers in 1874, and rose to the rank of second Lieutenant. He marched to the front in December, 1878, and was in command on the 22nd January, 1879, when he fell at Isandhlwana by the side of Colonel Dnrnford. He left behind him the name of a brave Volunteer, esteemed and beloved by his men.
