Lt. Melvill: Well done, Sir! Did you see that Noggs? Deceived him with the up and took him with the down. Norris-Newman: Well well, this one's a grandfather at least. If he'd been a Zulu in his prime I'd have given odds against your lancer, Mr.Melvill.

COLONEL FREDERICK B. SCOTT, M.D., C.M.G.. is placed on retired pay, December 9th. His comrnissions were thus dated: Assistant-Surgeon,October 1st, 1862; Surgeon, March 1st, I873; Surgeon-Major, April 28th, 1876; Brigade-Surgeon, January 23rd, 1888; and Surgeon-Colonel, December 25th, 1892. From Hart's Army List we learn that Colonel Scott received the special approbation of the Madras Government, followed by that of His Royal Highness the Commander-in-Chief, for his services rendered while in medical charge of the 18th Hussars during a most virulent outbreak of cholera in the regiment at Secunderabad, in May, 187I. He served in the Zulu war of 1870, and organised the Bearer Company; made the hospital arrangements at the Fort Pearson base for the Ekowe Relieving Column; afterwards with the 2nd Division on the personal staff of Lord Chelmsford and in medical charge of the Headquarters Staff, and was present in the engagement at Ulundi, where his services were described by Lord Chelmsford as having been "of the greatest value;" he accompanied the 17th Lancers in their charge and pursuit of the enemy, and by rendering timely aid to a Lancer who was dangerously
wounded prevented his falling into the enemy's hands, and served subsequently to the end of the war as Senior Medical Officer of Port Durnford and that line of communication between Ulundi and the Tugela (mentioned in despatches, medal with clasp). During the Egyptian war of 1882 he was on the personal staff of the Duke of Connaught, commanding the 1st Brigade, and was present at the battle of Tel-el-Kebir (appointed a Companion of the Order of St. Michael and St. George, medal with clasp, and Khedive's star)".
