Capital Man Battles
For British in France
Edward H. Fellows Captain of
English Cavalry on Battle-
front in Flanders.
From a prominent figure, in Washing
top society to a hard-working captain
of English cavalry nt tho battle front
in Flanders such is tho transition
through which Edword M. Fellows, for
mer master of the hounds of the Wash
ington Riding and Hunt Clb, has passed
stneo leaving hero In May, 1914. An
nouncement of this and news that
Captain Fellows Is allvo and well are
oontalned In a lottor Just rccetvod here.
Somewhere In tho north of Franco to-(
uay is tne dtsiinguisnea looKing wasn
Ingtonlan, for, dcspltn the fact that ho
Is English by birth, descent, and man
nerism. Fellows chose to call Waahlnsv
ton his permanent abode until the war
caused him to reswear nis allegiance
to his natlvo land.
Standing mnro than six feet, of clear
complexion. Iron gray hnlr and mus
tache, tho former master of the hounds
attracted attention wherever ho mads
his appearance at social functions,
horso. shows, and hunt meets. He suc
ceeded Walter Tuckorman as M. K. u.
of tho Riding and Hunt Club, and be
came one of tho most popular "mas
ters" tho club ever had.
Mrs. Fellows augmented by her
charm and grace the popularity won by
her dashing husband, and the couple
soon became a Washington Institution,
being hosts at numerous delightful en
tertainments at which the "horsey"
contingent assembled at their apart
ments in the Highlands, and guests at
almost every affair of note on the city's
social calendar. Mrs. Fellows was an
American girl. Miss Bessie Tucker, of
Raleigh. N. C.
But tho carefree llfo which they had
both set out to live In tho Capital was
"too Ideal to Jaat long." to use the
words of one of their friends.
The counts was ohlleed in lav
Washington to no to England to aettlo
nn estate left to Mr. Fellows by the
win 01 an uncie. uney were in Kngiana
when the war started, and during the
winter of 1914 Placed their country
place, Charlton Manor, North Pewsey,
Wiltshire, at tho disposal of tho Canadi
Ib Made Lieutenant.
Early in the spring of 1915 Mr. Fel
lows could not longer stand the sight
of his fellow countrymon going to war
while he remained Idle. He enlisted In
the remount squadron at Ormsklrk,
near Liverpool, and was commissioned
a lieutenant of cavalry. In September
last he was commissioned a captain
and sent to tho Flanders front. Sev
eral times ho has been reported killed,
but fortunately has bobbed up alive
after each rumor.
Mrs. Fellows Is In London with rela
tives and friends of her husband. She
has advised her Washington friends
that they may reach her husband by
addressing him care of the English
cavalry at Dieppe, Franco, maybe.
