i"· HERBERT PETER CAZALY, aged 30, a stationer’s clerk,
lost his life on April 21st, 1889, in endeavouring to save “
a man from drowning.
fp H. P. Cazaly and a friend were rowing on the Thames *
near Kew, when they saw two boats in danger of collision.

capsized, throwing him and his companion into the
ii water. The latter managed to cling to the upturned

Cazaly at once threw him his coat and waistcoat
` i and also jumped in after him, but, unfortunately, the
gg man caught hold of his would­be rescuer and they both
p sank. Cazaly’s friend went to his assistance but could
p J do nothing, and both he, and the companion of the man
who was drowned with Cazaly, were rescued by the
i, ferryman at Kew. 3
è Cazaly perished, the jury found, in the noble act of
Z trying to save the life of a fellow creature.
