GARSTIN Crosbie 612.Crosbie was born in Mount Vernon, Newlyn, Cornwall to Norman Garstin and Louisa ‘Dochie’ née Jones. He was the eldest of three children; Denys (later Denis) (1890 – 1918) and Alethea (1894 – 1978). He was educated at Brandon House, Cheltenham, Elstow School, Bedford and in Germany. He was head-boy of his school due to sporting prowess in rugby union and swimming. As a young man he traveled and worked as a bronco buster in Montana, United States and as a lumberjack in Canada. He also traveled to China, Hawaii, Japan and Morocco. On returning home his father, fed-up with Crosbie's inability to get suitable qualifications and hold down a job, sent him to South Africa. From 1912, he ran a cattle ranch in Bechuanaland, and acted as a bush ranger to the Tati Concessions. With the outbreak of World War I he came back to Britain and in October 1914 joined 'B' Squadron of the King Edward's Light Horse as a private. The regiment left for France on 21 April 1915 and Garstin was promoted to lance corporal shortly before leaving. He was commissioned on the battlefield as a Second Lieutenant on 14 September 1915, and joined 'C Squadron, which was attached to the 47th (London) Division at Nœux-les-Mines and was involved in the Battle of Loos and on the Italian Front. In 1916, he was posted to Dublin as an Intelligence Officer during the rebellion there. As well as writing poetry he made contributions to Punch magazine which were well received. Garstin disappeared when returning from a party to a friend's yacht Osprey in the Salcombe estuary on 19 April 1930. The rowing boat capsized and his body was never found despite Garstin being a strong swimmer and other two occupants of the boat surviving. His widow, Lillian (née Barkworth) was Mayor of Penzance in 1962–63. Photograph of Lieutenant Crosbie Garstin in 1914 from Old Comrades Association Bulletin 19: 23, 1952.
