It may be some consolation to you to know that he died instantaneously, and that he was performing a gallant act when he was struck down.” The Divisional Officer Commanding wrote: “He was one of the best officers I have been privileged to command during my long service at home and abroad: beloved in the field ambulance, he won the esteem of all ranks.” Owen was the youngest son of Herbert Seaton Hairsine of 39 Buckingham Mansions, West Hampstead, N.W. and Harriet Ann - daughter of William Tapsell Baker of Brighton; and the husband of Sylvia Anita - married on 1st July 1916.
