Blamey, Major Mead (Hon. Sec.), and J. A. Nicholls (Secretary). The minutes of the last meeting showed that the Prince of Wales had sent his annual subscription of 25 guineas towards the annual regatta fixed for Monday, 30th July. The Sailing Committee were empowered to draw on the funds of the Club to the extent of £150 towards the regatta. During the past week circulars have been issued, asking the members to contribute to the regatta funds, and amongst those who first subscribed was Mr F. Barrett, Vice-commodore, who has given £20. The club will offer £210 in prizes. It is understood that the Prince of Wales has promised to allow his yacht Berenice to take part in the regatta at Mount’s Bay, Penzance. On Monday, the Mayor of Penzance received an intimation from Mr Gould, that his yacht Vigilant would be entered for the regatta. Mr Gould has also given £20 towards the regatta funds. As the Mount’s Bay regatta will take place on July 27th, and the Royal Cornwall on July 30th, it is anticipated that the big yachts will pay us a visit, and race in the splendid waters for which Falmouth is so well noted.

The Rev. E. Adams, who has the well-being of the lads in his keeping, had made very careful arrangements, so that the many friends of the Brigade might view the drills and exercises to the best advantage. Mrs Ellison, wife of the Vicar, kindly distributed the prizes in the absence of Lady Trees Barry, who was unable to be present owing to the unfavourable state of the weather. The lads paraded at 8.30 and under the command of Colour-Sergeant Silver of the Company, and of their capable instructor Corporal Lewis, of the Coldstream Guards, went through a long series of drills and gymnastic exercises in a highly creditable manner. … The Band, under the able conductorship of Bandmaster Boulter, gave a good selection of music, and showed a great advance on former years. Before asking Mrs Ellison to distribute the awards, the Rev. E. Adams stated that Mr G. H. Peters had again defrayed the whole cost of the medals, making now four years that his generous backing up had so materially assisted the Windsor Company. … The following were the winners: 1st Class Bars – Col.-Sergt. Silver (making fourth won), Corpl.
