LAST POST" AT CARMARTHEN The Carmarthenshire Royal Garrison Artil- lery Militia, established in 1750, was dissolved on Saturday, and the Reserves, who received their bounty when they boarded the train which conveyed them from Carmarthen, will in future be the Field Artillery Reserves, and train yearly with the Regulars at Newport, Mon. Before the Last Post" was sounded by the regimental trumpeters at 10 o'clock on Saturday night, the permanent staff met in the Carmarthen Barracks and washed out the regiment by conviviality, all quietly dis- persing after ringing cheers for the colonel (Sir James Williams-Drummond, Bart.), the major (Mr Dudley Williams-Drummond), and the other officers. The permanent staff will at the end of June, after a meeting of the Board of Inspection, be scattered, some, being attached to other regi- ments and some pensioned off. The staff, which is forall practical purposesnow defunct, comprised Lieutenant-Quartermaster Poison, Warrant-Officer Ward(the regimental sergeant- major), Quartermaster-Sergeant Bath, Ser- geant -Majors Macdonald, Maby, and Martin, Sergeants Burrows, Bentley, Nott, Gaulton, and Edmunds, Sergeant-Trumpeter Henson (band-master), Trumpeters Nelson, F. G. Sanders, and C. A. Sanders. A quartermaster, a quartermaster-sergcant.and four gunners are left at the Carmarthen Depot as special reserves.
