From Southern Rhodesia, with which Dominion Mr. Arthur Clement Bagshawe, C.M.G., had been associated for about forty years, news comes that this valued worker died at Salisbury on the 14th inst., at the age of sixty-three.
Mr. Bagshawe was the second son of the late Clement Walsh Bagshawe, J.P., of Dover. After education at Ushaw and at Liege University he entered the Southern Rhodesian Civil Service in 1897. In 1930-34 he filled the posts, successively, of Secretary to the Ministry of Agriculture and Departmental Secretary to the Prime Mini ster. After his retirement from official work in 1934, in which year he received the honour of the C.M.G., he became local Secretary to the British South Africa Company in Northern Rhodesia.
For his zeal as a Catholic Mr. Bagshawe received, three years ago, the Cross Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice. He will be greatly missed by his fellow-Catholics in Salisbury.
