Lieutenant Colonel Ernest Lerocq du Domaine died at his home. Newlandside, Sandylane, Charlton, Kings, Cheltenham, England, 6 September 1949.

Colonel du Domaine, who had been ill for some months, had lived in Cheltenham for 16 years.

British born, his father was a naturalized Englishman and his mother was English—he went out to Canada as a young man and joined The Royal Canadian Regiment.

He served continuously in the Regiment, taking part in the fighting in France during the First World War until his retirement in the 1920s.

A keen musician—he played a violin—he once played by Royal Command for Queen Victoria.
