The following note written by his niece Rosemary.

Richard Arthur Collins (Dick) – born Hatch End, Middx and educated Wellington College and Cambridge University (I think). He served in the Royal Artillery in India and elsewhere and retired as Lieut Colonel. He inherited his uncle (Angas Collins) property, Greens Park in Northants, where he hunted with the Grafton Hunt. Unfortunately, he was something of a spendthrift and frequently borrowed money when he could from other family members. Greens Park had to be sold and he moved into a smaller house not far away. He was killed in a traffic accident. He married Mabel Patricia (Pat) Austen who out lived him by several years. They had no children.
