Regimental Quarter Master Sgt Edward Scott, 200233 (ex-3458), 1/5th Battalion Bedfordshire Regiment, died in hospital in Jerusalem from pneumonia on January 12th, 1918, during the Palestine campaign.

Born in Luton in 1878, his home was at 12 Grove Road, Luton, where he had lived with Annie (nee Wingrave), whom he married in 1906.

Edward served with the Yellow Devils during the Dardanelles campaign but developed dysentery, for which he was brought back to the UK by hospital ship and treated at Cardiff. Five days out from Alexandria the hospital ship was held up by a German submarine that sank an accompanying steamer. The appearance of a British destroyer forced the submarine to flee, leaving the hospital ship to complete its journey safely.
