Extract from the Stock Exchange Memorial Book:

CAPTAIN STUART BERTRAM NOAKES, Royal Army Service Corps, was the youngest son of Wickham Noakes of Selsdon Park, near Croydon.

Born in 1876, he was educated at Rugby, and on leaving went on the Stock Exchange, where he became a Member in 1899.

He was a keen all-round sportsman and had travelled a great deal. He joined the A.S.C. in 1915 as a private, and on getting his commission, in 1917, he was sent to the Motor Transport Depot at Avonmouth.

When taking a detachment out to Egypt on the R.M.S. Aragon, he was drowned, the ship being torpedoed off Alexandria on 31 December 1917.

STUART BERTRAM NOAKEs was the fourth son of Wickham Noakes,Justice of the Peace, High Sheriff of Surrey in 1907 and 1908, of SelsdonPark, near Croydon, and of Kate Frances Noakes.He entered Rugby School in 1889 and left in 1893. He joined the StockExchange in 1895.After working in Coventry for six months to learn mechanics, hereceived his Commission in the Army Service Corps in April, 1916, and was promoted Captain in December, 1917. He left England for Egypt on December 16th, 1917, and was lost, with nine other Officers and nearly 500 men, when theAragon was torpedoed off Alexandria, December 30th, 1917. Age42. Another Officer, also an Old Rugbeian, who escaped from this disaster,wrote of the wonderful order that prevailed on the ship after she was struck, although she was carrying 150 Nurses in addition to 133 Officers and over 2,000 men. By this means all the Nursing Sisters were got away safely, and he believed that the total loss of life would have been less than 100, but for the fact that the escorting Destroyer was also badly damaged by a torpedo. He did not see Captain Noakes after the ship was struck, but heard a report that he was injured when the ship heeled over. Captain Noakes married, in April, 1906, Mabel Downing, eldest daughter of Charles Allen, of Manchester, and left three daughters
