The Cumberland Pacquet, 23rd October 1902

From the Gossip and Personal column

The “Gazette” states that supernumerary Major the Hon. Lieutenant-Colonel JENKINS, 3rd Border Regiment, has been absorbed into the establishment of the regiment.

The “Gazette” states that among the promotions in the service of officers for service during the South African War, Captain (temporary Major) L. H. CAIRD, of the Border Depot, and Captain E. M. DUNNE, formerly of the Border regiment have been granted the substantive rank of Major.

There was placed on view on Friday, in the shop window of Mr. John TURNER, Rowrah, a handsome marble clock (bearing a suitable inscription) which, along with a gent’s easy chair, is to be presented to Sergt. Robt. PEARSON, at Lamplugh School, on the 31st of the present month, in recognition of his having served through the Boer War in the 1st Border Regiment.
