Captain Donald Aucutt, Royal Warwickshire Regiment, youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. Aucutt of Denmark Hill S.E. was killed on October 9, aged 24. He was educated at Alleyn's School, Dulwich and subsequently qualified as a doctor at King's College, taking the first available examination after the outbreak of war; and obtained an R.A.M.C. lieutenancy. Feeling that he could serve his country better in the fighting line he resigned his commission and joined the ranks in the Royal Sussex Regiment, and was later given a commission in the Royal Warwickshire Regiment, being promoted captain last July.
