    IN Dr. J. W. Jenkinson, whose death in Gallipoli we announced last week, science has lost a devoted and distinguished son. His friends in Oxford had scarcely realised that he had reached the front when news came that he was killed in action on June 4. A keen member of the Oxford Volunteer Training Corps he applied for a commission, though over age, and joined the 12th Worcestershire regiment in January last. He was promoted to a captaincy on April 1, and on May 10 left for service in the Dardanelles, being one of a draft of six officers from his regiment attached to the 2nd Royal Dublin Fusiliers.
