who was killed in the action off Jutland.
By the death in action off Jutland of Lt.-Commander J.S. Wilson, R.N., on the Indefatigable, Scottish international Rugby has lost her eighteenth cap. He was a very fine, dashing forward, who played for the Navy against the Army in 1907 and again in 1913, and for Scotland against Ireland in 1903, and against Wales in 1909. Of the sturdy type, he was a hard, bustling player for whom no match was too strenuous. Lt. Wilson is the forty-second Rugby international to fall in this war.
