Frederick Septimus Kelly (1881-1916) was born in Sydney, Australia, but was sent to Eton College and then Oxford for his education. While there he began rowing, soon competing at the highest levels: Henley, the Boat Race, and the 1908 Olympics. Afterward he focused on music, studying in Frankfurt. In 1914 Kelly was commissioned into the British Royal Naval Division and sent to Gallipoli. Despite being wounded he survived the Gallipoli campaign and was sent to fight in France. He died while rushing a German machine gun post at the Battle of the Somme in November 1916.
