LIEUT. JAMES ELLIOT BALFOUR-MELVILLE (3rd Black Watch), a son of Mr. Leslie M. Balfour-Melville, was born in Edinburgh on July 9, 1882, and was killed in action in France on September 27.

In 1913 he was a member of the Scotch side which played a few matches in England, and against Surrey at the Oval scored 32 out of 43 in twenty minutes. Among the many clubs to which he belonged were the M.C.C., I. Zingari and Grange. For the last-named he averaged 57 in 1905. At Oxford he obtained his blue for Association football, playing from 1901 to 1905, and in the last-mentioned year being captain.
