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.

DICKATY, CHARLES CHRISTOPHER, Private 17707, 1st Battalion, Grenadier
Guards. Died 16.01.1916, aged 23. Son of John and Essie Dickaty, of Bramdean, Alresford,
Hampshire. Buried in Merville Communal Cemetery, Nord, France, VI.G.2. (CWGC)
Died of wounds. (UK, Soldiers Died in the Great War 1914-1919).
Army Service Record not available.
“….. deceased …. had been previously wounded at Loos, but had recovered, and was on
sentry over a machine gun when he was shot through the head and so met with a painless
death. He was a stalwart and smart young fellow, and from letters which his father has
received was evidently as popular in his regiment as in his native village.
Mr Dickaty is himself a veteran and went through the Zulu War with the King’s Royal
Rifles, from which he retired with the rank of sergeant
; he was also granted the medal
for long and meritorious service. He still has four sons on active service, and a daughter
is a nurse in a military hospital in Portsmouth. At the outbreak of war he offered his
services, for which he was thanked, but informed that probably at his time of life he
would find the duties too strenuous. It cannot be out of place to mention the excellent
work that he has done since he left the regiment, where he was Sergeant-Instructor
of Infantry. When the late Lord Roberts advocated the training of young men in the use
of the rifle, Mr Dickaty started a rifle club, in which he received the cordial support of
all classes, and up to the present time has continued to teach all who would learn to
shoot. There are few of the many men who have joined up in this neighbourhood but
have received his valuable tuition.” (Hampshire Chronicle 26.02.1916)
