‘Windsor Church Lads’ Brigade. On Wednesday evening the Windsor Parish Company of the Church Lad’s Brigade assembled at the Town Hall, to give a display of gymnastics and drill and to receive medals, bars, and other prizes won by the members during the past year. 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. Benoit (second), Privates Brewer, Ledgley, Morse, Davis and Higgs. 1st Class Medals – Privates Charlish, Rickards and Colborne. 2nd Class Bars – Privates Wright and Barrett. 2nd Class Medal – Private J. Wilson. Pendant for 5 years’ service – Sergeant Edwards. Silver Medal – Corpl. Benoit. Drill, &c. – 1st, Squad 3 (Corpl.

Battye congratulated the lads on their drill and for the number of medals and bars that they had won. … On the proposal of Capt. Rotherham, the lads gave three hearty cheers “for the Vicar’s wife” for her kindness in presenting the medals.’

15 February 1908: County News: Dover: The intelligence of the death on Monday of Mr Thomas Lewis, the Clerk of the Peace for the Borough and Liberties of Dover, was received with deep regret. Additional sadness was given to the event by the fact that his only daughter  -Leonora  –  had died at the same house only twenty-four hours previously. Mr Lewis had only been ill for a week, suffering from influenza, and this gradually developed into pneumonia, from which Mr Lewis succumbed. The deceased lady, who was thirty six years old, was taken ill with influenza a few days ago, when pneumonia set in, and she passed away early on Sunday. The deceased gentleman had been closely connected with local affairs during the past forty years, holding offices with the principal societies and religious bodies in Dover. Mr Lewis was born in Dover, and his father was a surgeon formerly practising in Snargate Street, Dover. He commenced life as an articled pupil to the late Mr Edward Knocker father of the late Town Clerk (Sir Wollaston Knocker), and after serving his articles was for a short time at Hythe. He then removed to Dover, and had continued in practice as a solicitor in Castle Street since 1866. Miss Leonora Lewis, like her father, was closely connected with parochial work in St James’ parish. She was honorary secretary to the local branch of the children’s Scripture Union, and also a Sunday School teacher. The St James’ Clothing Club was managed by her. Mrs Lewis has lately been lying seriously ill with pneumonia, but we are glad to hear that her condition shows some improvement.
