"Captain Hakry Boklase Willock, B.E., was born at Tenby on 6th March 1854, and was educated at
Cheltenham College, whence he passed into the Boyal Military Academy in December 1870 ; and in 1872, having obtained a commission as lieutenant in the Royal Euoineers, he proceeded to the School of Military Engineering at Chatham. In 1876 he went to Bermuda, where he served with the 10th Company, Royal Engineers, and was employed for nearly two years in connection with the works for the defence of the new dockyard and naval anchorage. Returning to England, he joined the 2nd Co. R.E. at Shorncliffe, and in December 1878 proceeded with them to South Africa. There he served in the earlier part of the Zulu war with
Colonel Pearson's column, and was present in the action at Inyezano on 22nd January 1879 and throughout the occupation of Ekowe ; he was mentioned in despatches in the " London Gazette " 16th May 1879, and received the medal and clasp. On his return to England he was appointed to take charge of the workshops at the School of Millitary Engineering, and from thence went to the works dejmrtment of the Royal Arsenal, Woolwich, under Colonel W. H. Noble, R.E., unci subsequently uucTer Colonel Crozier, E.E., where under Lis
care a considerable portion of tbe railways in the arsenal were rc-arranged and relaid, a work mucli required owing to the extension of the factories and tbe greatly increased loads that bad to bo moved. In 1882 on tbe outbreak of tbe Egyptian war be was appointed to assist in tbe railway transport, and prior to embarkation
was engaged at Woolwicb Arsenal in collecting and shipping railway material and plant. He sailed for Egypt in August of that year, and on arriving at Ismailia superintended the unloading of the stores ; be was afterwards left in charge during tbe rush of traffic to Cairo, and at the conclusion of the campaign collected and accounted
for all railway stores. For these services be received the medal and bronze star. Eeturniug to England at the end of 1882 he was placed on the staif of the inspector of iron structures at tbe War Office, and there assisted in the designing and construction of all machinery required in connection v/ith the coast defences, and in the
supply of material and general supervision of military railways in this country and in Egypt and the Soudan. For the latter service he was officially commended by the inspector-general of fortifications. In December 1887, he was appointed inspector of iron structui-es, as successor to Major English, E.E,; and in this capacity
completed tbe erection and tests of the 112-ton hydraulic traveller at Shoeburyness, and designed tbe details of the 250-ton pontoon sheers now in course of construction. He acted as secretary to tbe committee on the preparation of the " Military railway manual," and also to the committee on the preparation of " Instructions for the care and maintenance of war department boilers." In the somewhat laborious calculations involved in obtaining tbe results given by Major English in bis paper before this Institution on experiments on the
distribution of beat in a stationary steam-engine (Proceedings 1887 page 486) he rendered much valuable assistance. He died at his father's house at Tenby on 6th February 1889, after a very short illness, in tbe thirty-fifth year of his age. He became a Member of this Institution in 1884."
