HONOURS FOR SHROPSHIRE. A DISTINGUISHED OFFICER. The King has approved of the grant of a Good Service Pension of a X100 a year to Major-General Si. C E Knox, K.C.B., at present commanding a Mobile Column in South Africa. His brilliant ser- vices during the present War are well known to everybody* and it is, doubtless, in recognition of these services that he has received this pension at so comparatively early a period of his caieer. He joined the Army as Ensign in the old 85th Foot (now 2nd Battalion Shropshire Light Infantry) on June 30, 1865; became Colonel on December 9, 1882, and Major General on December 4, 1899, just after the commencement of the War. He took part in the Bechuanaland Expedition of 1884-85, in com- mand of the 4th Pioneers. He was honourably mentioned for his services, and promoted Brevet Liefc Colonel. He has received a Knighthood for his services in South Africa while Lord Roberts was in command, and it is nearly certain that further reward awaits him for his services under Lord Kitchener.
