BUCKLEY. VOLUNTEER INSPECTION. — The annual in- spection of the 1st Flintshire Royal Engineer Volunteers took place on Saturday, before Colonel Savage, C.R.E., N.W.D. The following were present on parade:—Six officers, 10 sergeants, 3 buglers, 120 rank and file; total, 139; absent 14, out of which 14 there was only one member absent without leave. The inspection was undertaken in a field opposite head quarters. Mill-lane, kindly placed at the disposal of the corps by Messrs. Jos. Catherall andWm. Hopwood. The men were marched on to the field by Lieutenant Lamb, and drawn up in line ready to receive the Colonel with the general salute. The march past was then done in column and quarter column, and after that the manual and firing exercises were performed under Lieutenant Lamb's command. The companies were next handed over to the company commanders, and various company movements were performed. The men were again formed up into line, and advanced in review order. Colonel Savage, in addressing the men, said, as they all knew, that was his first inspection of the corps, and he was pleased to say that on the whole he would be able to make a favourable report to the General on their efficiency. There were a few things, however, that he would like to mention. The march past was very good indeed, and the steadiness in the ranks, he was very pleased to say, was good, but in the manual exercises he noticed some men who had not the slightest notion what to do. This shewed that these men had not been attending drills, and he would like to impress upon them the necessity of attend- ing drills regularly. He was also sorry to notice that some cf the pouches were very dirty, and that very little cleaning appeared to have been done to them. The corps then marched back to headquarters, and Colonel Savage made a minute inspection of each rifle, after which the men were dismissed. The band of the corps, under Bandmaster Griffiths, was in attendance. Colonel Savage, accompanied by the officers, afterwards inspected the engineering works, the armoury, stores, &c.
