Colonel Page, of Penarth, who, after a service of 32 years, is retiring from the 2nd Glamorgan Artillery Volunteers, was entertained at dinner in the Drill-hall by his brother officers, Lieutenant- Colonel Fisher, who succeeds Colonel Page in the •command, presiding. There was a full niuster to do honour to the retiring colonel, whosdervices to the regiment, as well as his genial personal charac- teristics, are highly appreciated. Colonel Page is one of the oldest Volunteers in the country, having, prior to joining the artillery, been for two years connected with the light-horse and having, since attaining command, spared neither time nor effort to maintain the efficiency and soldierly spirit of the men under him. The gathering was made the occasion of presenting him with a handsome silver salver, in commemoration of his service, and in expression of the esteem in which he is held. THE PRESENTATION was made, on behalf of the officers generally, by Lieutenant-Colonel Fisher, who, in the course uf a short speech, dwelt upon the good work which Colonel Page had done for the artillery, and de- scribed the cordial relations that prevailed between the retiring commanding officer and those who had had the pleasure of serving under him.-Colonel Page suitably responded, taking opportunity to recognise the steadfast support and loyal co-opera- tion whi*h his brother officers had accorded him and he concluded by proposing the health of Captain and Adjutant Eyre, R.A., to whose efforts, he said, the high state of the corps was due. He added expression of his, hope that every success would attend the regiment in the future. THE SEVERN" DIVISION SUBMARINE MIXING ENGINEERS, ? commanded by Major A.
