I Brecon Officer. I KILLECTION. í COUXTY SURVEYOR'S DOUBLE BEREAVEMENT. Profound sympathy is felt in Brecon and district for Mr and Mrs C. W. Best, Penbryn, who, following upon the news of the death in action in Mesopotamia of their youngest son, Lieut. F. H. Best, S.W.B., on the 13th ult., have now been officially informed that their second son, Lieut. A. S. Mid diet-on Best, R.E., was killed in action on the same front on Friday last. Lieut, A. S. Middleton Best, who was 31 years of age, was born in London, and was educated at Mr Le Brocq's Preparatory School, and Christ College, Brecon. He j-tndied engineering under his father, and subsequently took the course at the Central Technical College for engineering, the diploma of which he obtained as well as the degree of B.Sc. for engineering of the University of London. He was also an associate member of the Institution of Civil Engineers. For some time he as- sisted his father in the work of County Surveyor for Breconshire, and early in 1913 left this country to take up an appointment as assistant engineer under the Public Works Department of the Federated Malay Straits. With commendable patriotism, he came home early in .]915 at his own expense to volunteer for ser- vice in the war, and was appointed second lieutenant in the Royal Engineers, Welsh Division, and promoted lieutenant a few months later. He was stationed at Abergavenny and afterwards at Llandudno, and from there volunteered for service in the East. He was wounded in December last, and resumed duty early in January. Another son of Mr and Mrs Best is also serving in Mesopotamia,
