Sudden Death of a Well Known Military Officer - Lieutenant Colonel C S Rundle Passes Away. It is with the greatest regret that we have to announce the death of Lieutenant Colonel C S Rundle of 6 Waverley Terrace, which took place very suddenly during the early hours of this morning at the German Prisoners Concentration Camp at Blanches Banques. Colonel Rundle had served in the Indian section of the RAMC and on his retirement, some 10 years ago, he decided to take up residence in Jersey. On the outbreak of war he at once offered his services to the War Office and eventually he was asked to take over the onerous duties of Senior Medical Officer at the Prisoners of War Concentration Camp, where he had been stationed periodically since the advent of our Hun captives to the Island. Last evening Colonel Rundle, who was apparently in his usual state of health, dined at Mess with his brother officers at the Camp and about 11 o'clock he retired to bed. Colonel Rundle was heard coughing about 1 o'clock so that it was quite clear he was then alive, but on going to take hot water to him some hours later the orderly could not get any answer and, giving the alarm, entrance was effected and it was discovered he had passed away during the night. Major Frampton, the second Medical Officer, was summoned as was subsequently Centenier J W Dart of St Brelades. The doctor was able to issue a certificate to the effect that death was due to heart failure, and this having been transmitted by the Centenier to the Bailiff he accepted it, thus obviating the necessity for holding an inquest. The deceased officer, who was 62, was for some time Honorary Secretary of the Jersey Choral Society and was a most popular personality among local residents. Colonel Rundle leaves a widow, a son and a daughter, while it will be remembered that another soldier son gave his life for his Country about a year ago at Gallipoli. To the widow and the members of the family we would tender our sincerest sympathy in their bereavement. The interment takes place with Military Honours on Wednesday afternoon; the first portion of the service is to be held at St Saviours Church at 3 o'clock.
