On Sundav morning there way n combined parade at Penarth of Noa. 9 and 10 Companies 2nd Brigade of 'he Glamorgan Volunteer At-till, i-y and the 3rd V.B Penarth and Cardiff detachments- The magni- ficent muster of 400 strong at the Artillery Drill Hall was an unmistakably emphatic denial to the recently- circulated canard that a strained feeling exists be- tween the local sections of the Volunteers. Colonel Fry was in command of the 2nd G.V.A., and Capt. Coleman of theSrdVB- Among the other officers present were :—Major Fleming Th< mas, Captains W. Gascoyne Dalziel, Handcock, Kendall, M. Ingram, Dent, Cook, and Enoor Lieutenants Simp&on. Ward, Wilson, Tanner, Morel- Pyman. Bradley, Tweedy, and Hoyle Sergeat-Instructor Lobban (3rd V.B), Sergeant-Major Orill-Instrnclor Daly (R. A.). Quar- ter-Master Sheppard. Captain and Quartar-Master Coleman; Sergeant-Majors Atwel. tkins. and Wakecombe; Sergeant T. S. Lloyd and Sergeant Read, of the cyclists. Headed by the band of the 2nd G. V.A, under Bandmaster Mr Paul Draper, the men marched in admirable order to St. Augustine's, where the lessons were impressively read by Capt. Coleman, and a suitable address was given by the rector, the Rev W. S veet-Escott, B-A., who based his remarks on Thessalonians v. xxiii. The choral part of the service was accompanied by the band, who also gave grand renditions of Maseagui's voluntary, •• Inter- mezzo," and Handel's recessional chorus, "Hallelu- jah." The men subsequently marched back to the Drill Hall, where light refreshments were provided. Colonel Fry felicitated the officers upon the men's smartness ?nd efficiency, saying it was the largest and test parade that had taken place at Penarth.
