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.
