Birth: 1994, England
Death: Aug. 5, 2011, Norway

Horatio was born the son of David and Olivia Chapple. They lived in a large country home in leafy Bishopstone, near Salisbury, UK. He was a good student at Eton College, and very well-liked. On the cusp of adulthood, he had a clear vision of where his life was going, and was excited about his plans to become a doctor. Described as strong, fearless and kind with an amazing sense of humour and an ability to laugh at himself, he was one of a group of five men and boys travelling on a British Schools Exploring Society (BSES) expedition. They were camped on the Von Postbreen glacier near Longyearbyen on Svalbard, north of the Norwegian mainland. It was early in the morning, and they were sleeping in tents when a polar bear attacked the group. A trip-wire system which triggers a charge to scare away polar bears had failed to activate. Horatio passed away and is survived by his parents; his younger brothers, Titan and Magnus; and many other relatives and friends.
