Wigram, assembled in the Castle-yard, and afterwards attended divine service at St John’s church. There were present 76 men, 8 sergeants, and about 20 bandsmen, or more than 100 out of a total of 128. – After service the men were marched back to the Parade by way of the Crescent and through High Street. Colonel Patton was present. The annual regimental prize shooting competition of the 2nd battalion Somerset Rifle Volunteers took place at Dunball on Monday under very favourable circumstances, so far as the weather was concerned, though the wind was uncertain. The ranges were 200, 500, and 600 yards (Wimbledon rules), and seven shots at each. Private Dunn, of the Wellington corps, was successful in carrying off the first prize (with 87 points). This consisted of a grand oak tankard, with silver handle rim and lip, with oxidised mountings representing a combat of armed knights. This handsome cup was offered by Lieut.-Col. Patton. Corporal Cutler, also of Wellington, took the second prize – a timepiece, which was presented by the officers of the battalion, with a total of 80 points, and Sergeant Pollard, of Bridgwater, came third with 79 points, and took a silver cup also presented by the colonel. There were six other prizes of 10s each (made up of surplus entrance fees), which were won by the following: – Private Peach, Bridgwater, 79 points; Private Thornton, Wiveliscombe, 78; Sergt.

At the conclusion of the competition Col. Patton addressed a few congratulatory remarks to those to whom he had the pleasure of handing prizes; he was loudly cheered by the men;

Middlezoy: A detached dwelling-house belonging to Mr Millard, and in the occupation of a labourer named Martin, was destroyed by fire on Saturday morning, and two young children, aged only three and four years, narrowly escaped being burned to death. Their mother locked them in the house while taking their father’s breakfast to a cornfield about a mile and a half distant, and shortly after her departure one of the children appeared to have played with some matches and set the bedroom on fire. The district postman (James Wenslade), when passing along the road, saw smoke and flames issuing from the thatched roof, and hearing screams proceeding from inside, he burst open the door and rushed upstairs, and brought the two children down – one on each arm. The room was filled with smoke, and in another minute or two the children, who had crouched in a corner, would have been suffocated, or soon afterwards burned to death, for in a very short time the premises were wholly destroyed.

Advanced Primary Department “B” held the Scholars’ Party on Saturday, Feb. 28, when a large number of scholars had a thoroughly good time. Immediately tea was over, all adjourned to the Primary Dept., where along with the teachers a programme of games ranging from Oranges and Lemons, through the intricacies of Cat and Mouse, to Oats and Beans and Barley. Everyone had a happy time, and just before home time, thanks to our good friend Mr Martin of the Scouts, we had a Magic Lantern Show of a half-hour’s duration, during which time everyone (teachers especially) “cooled down”.’

‘Some time ago we had the pleasure of listening to a lecture by Scoutmaster Martin on “Buccaneers ashore and afloat”, and we said to ourselves, in the slightly altered words of “John Gilpin”, “And when he next doth speak aloud may we be there to hear.” The opportunity of being there came on March 7, when to our delight the versatile lecturer held forth on “Buccaneers abroad”, and told us of the adventures of the Scouts who were privileged to attend the great Jamboree in Denmark. It must have been a wonderful experience for the boys, not to speak of their Chief and Uncle George, who carried a camera, and many of the older ones that listened wished that they might turn back the fingers on the dial face of Time, and be Scouts. Certainly Denmark, from the King downwards, rose to the occasion and did honour to their visitors. As the lecturer stated, the gathering together of Scouts from all parts of the world must strengthen the international bonds of friendship and make for peace. The lantern slides which illustrated the lecture were excellent. The Mayor of Stockport (Councillor H. Patten) occupied the chair, and expressed his appreciation of the work of the Scouts in general, and of the labours of the energetic Chief of the S.S.S. Scouts in particular.’
