Rear-Admiral Robin Campsie Dalglish, C.B., died suddenly on Monday last, we regret to state, at his residence at Woolverstone, Ipswich, in his fifty-fifth year. Admiral Dalglish was the only surviving son of the late J. Campsie Dalglish, of Wandara, Goulburn, New South Wales, and of Mrs. Dalglish-Bellasis. He was educated at the Oratory School at Birmingham. During the Great War he served as Commander in 1915, and in 1918 was promoted Captain. In 1928-30 he was Commodore in command of Atlantic Fleet Destroyer Flotillas. He was a Naval A.D.C. to His Majesty the King in 1930-31; and in the latter year he was made Rear-Admiral. In 1932 Admiral Dalglish was lent, for two years, to the Royal Australian Navy to command H.M. Australian Squadron. The honour of the C.B. was conferred upon him in 1933.
