Funeral, Putney Vale Crematorium, 2.30 p.m., Tuesday, May 26. No flowers, by request". Notice in Telegraph 23 May 1953.1

"Major-General Sir Theodore Fraser, C.B., C.S.I. C.M.G., who died yesterday at the age of 87, was a Royal Engineer officer who served for most of his career with the Indian Army. His inclination was for staff work, and he held a succession of staff appointments both before and during the 1914-18 war, when he saw service in France and in Mesopotamia.

The son of the Rev. Donald Fraser, D.D., of Inverness and Marylebone, he was born on June 15, 1865, his mother being the fourth daughter of Major-General Alexander Gordon, R.E. From University College School he went to Clare College, Cambridge, obtaining his commission direct into the Royal Engineers in February, 1886.

Indian service soon brought him experience of frontier warfare. He was in the Chin-Lushai expedition of 1889-90 and the Hazara expedition, 1891. He got his captaincy in August, 1896, and during the Tirah campaign of 1897-98 he was adjutant R.E. 2nd Division. He had some experience of the South African War as a special service officer, from February to December, 1900, being employed in Cape Colony, the Orange Free State, and the Western Transvaal, where he was at the action of Frederickstad in October.

In 1901 he passed into the Staff College, but after graduating it was some time before he secured staff employment. He was promoted major in his corps in September, 1904, and appointed D.A.A.G. Bombay Brigade in February, 1905, passing to the headquarters of the Army in November, 1907, to become a D.A.Q.M.G. there. He left Simla in February, 1909, and at the beginning of 1910, was selected to be an instructor at the Indian Staff College. Here he remained three years, being promoted lieutenant-colonel in December, 1912. After leaving Quetta he came home and passed through a course at the Naval War College.

Eager for active service on the outbreak of the war, he had first to be content with the post of Embarkation Commandant. It was not until March, 1915, that he was appointed A.A. & Q.M.G. on the staff of the Lahore Division, then in France. In this capacity, and later as A.Q.M.G., he was with the division at "Second Ypres," and the battles of Aubers Ridge and Festubert, and accompanied it to Mesopotamia at the end of the year.

In May, 1916, Colonel Fraser was appointed G.S.O.1 on the staff of the newly formed 15th (Indian) Division, which remained on the Euphrates front, until, in October, he was transferred to the III Corps as Brigadier-General General Staff. With the corps he saw the Battle of Kut and the advance to and occupation of Baghdad, and then the operations on the Adhaim in April, 1917. He had received a brevet in March, and reached the substantive rank of colonel in December, by which time the operations in the Jabal Hamrin area had been concluded. From February to April, 1918, he acted as Chief of the General Staff to General Marshall, the Commander-in-Chief.

He succeeded to the command of the 15th Division in September, 1918, and in the following March took over the 18th Division, being promoted major-general in June. He was engaged in the Kurdistan operations of 1919-20, and relinquished command in October, 1921, From March to November, 1922, he commanded the forces in Iraq, but was not again employed until May 1924, when he was appointed to the Malaya command. Three years later he retired from the Army on an Indian pension."
