SCIENTIFIC men of this country have viewed with mingled feelings of pride and apprehension the enlistment in the new armies of so many of our most promising young men of science—with pride for their ready and ungrudging response to their country's call, and with apprehension of irreparable losses to science. These forebodings have been only too promptly realised by the death in action at the Dardanelles, on August 10, of Henry Gwyn Jeffreys Moseley, 2nd Lieut, in the Royal Engineers, at the age of twenty-seven. A son of the distinguished zoologist, the late Prof. H. N. Moseley, of Oxford, he was educated at Eton, entering as a scholar, and passed to Trinity College, Oxford, where he gained a Millard Scholarship. He obtained a First Class in Mathematical Moderations, and Honours in Natural Science.
