Popular Huntsman's Death.
 
The death occurred on Saturday night of Captain H. Collingwood Bertram, aged 43, of West Standen, for many years the popular and skillful huntsman of the Isle of Wight Foxhounds, who formerly served in the Isle of Wight Troop of the Hampshire Yeomanry, and was through the South African Campaign with them under the Brigadier General (then Capt., the Hon. J.E.B. Seely, C.B., D.S.O., M.P.) He was one of the most popular hunting men of the Island and was largely instrumental in the successful resuscitation of the Royal Isle of Wight Agricultural Society, of which he was an ideal secretary for some years. He had been ill for some time and went on Friday last to the Royal Isle of Wight County Hospital for an operation. He leaves a widow for whom much sympathy is felt.
