IMPERIAL YEOMANRY UNDER CANVAS.
IMPERIAL YEOMANRY UNDER CANVAS. (BY LAL TULWAR.) Newtown Camp, Monday. We were very glad to see at" reveille" this morning that the weather had cleared, and showed every prospect of having a fine day. And such it proved to be, for we were nearly sweltered on the hills. To-day is to be a field day practice, and we are taking up a line of outposts. The following scheme was issued in yesterday's orders:—Message received by officer com- manding Montgomeryshire Yeomnay, New- town, from General Officer commanding South Wales Mounted Brigade: Take up I a line of night outposts facing north and west from the K in Kerry Hill-Cider House-point 1,514, i mile south of Butter- well Farm—Hollybusli. Operation orders issued by Colonel R. W. Williams-Wynn, D.S.O. Reference one inch map. In accordance with the above orders, squadrons will take up positions for night outposts as follows :D Squadron, K in Kerry Hill to point 1,666 north of intrench- ments (inclusive) C. Squadron, point 1,666 (exclusive) to Cwrddwr Bank (point 1,597 inclusive); B Squadron, point 1,597 (exclusive), to hill 1,500, -4L mile south Butterwell Farm A Squadron, point 1,597 (exclusive) to Hollybush (inclusive). Squadrons will march off independently, so as to be in position by 10-15 a.m. Squadrons leaders should go on early them- selves to select their positions. For pur- poses of instructions:—(1) Reserves will be imaginary (2) supports can be repre- sented by a section only if necessary. All the troops had left camp by 8-15, and each squadron was on its way to take up the position allotted to it. After the line of outposts was complete, a heavy fog came on, much to our disappointment, and in a great measure it frustrated the scheme. All the troops held on and tried their utmost to do their best under the circum- stances, but the morning's work could not properly be carried out, and we returned to camp, much to the delight of the ice- cream man at the gates, who did a huge trade until he was absolutely bought up. The regimental sports, which were marred by the rain on Saturday, were continued this afternoon in splendid weather, and in the presence of a goodly number of spec- tators. The first item was an ambulance race, confined to the band, who have been instructed in St. John's ambulance work, and which was very interesting. Four couples competed, and the first prize was obtained by Bandsmen Claffey and Sidney Jones, the second prize going to Bandsmen Barclay and Evans. Dr Shearer, the tem- porary regimental medical officer, was in attendance and judged the event. Two heats were run off in the Victoria Cross race, and the first, second, and third in each heat were to be eligible for the final. Sergt. Roberts, of the Scouts, won first priee, the second prize going to Sergt. Norman Lloyd, B Squadron, and Trooper H. K. Jones, B Squadron, taking third prize. Six teams entered for the melee. The following was the result:—C 3 beat A Squadron C 1 beat C 4; C 2 beat C 3 C 1 beat C 2. Owing to B and D Squadron teams failing to come up to time they were disqualified. The wrestling on horseback was very in- teresting. Five teams had entered, and some very hard and trying struggles were witnessed. The first prize was divided be- tween C 1 and C 4, who were equal, having three men each side unseated, leaving the terror of each team to try their strength on eaoh other. Bout after bout was tried, but without success, and the judge decided to divide the prizes. Tent-pegging-First prize, Sergt. Roberts (Scouts) 2nd, Sergt. Howells, C Squadron. Heads and posts—1st prize, Sergt. T. Git- tins, B Squadron 2nd, Sergt. Richards, A Squadron. Lemon cutting—1st prize' Sergt. Tom Gittins, B Squadron 2nd, Sergt. Richards, A Squadron. Three teams entered for the tug-of-war, and the result was as follows:—B Squadron beat A Squadron C Squadron beat D Squadron, thus leaving B and C Squadrons in the final. These two squadrons have seen many finals together, but the first honours always fall to C Squadron, which is a well-known team. Few teams can.boast of such a fine record as this famous team of C Squadron. It has not been beaten since 1903. In 1904, at Welshpool, after a severe struggle with B squadron, they won the regimental prize. The following year at Kerry they were again successful. At Llangammarch Wells in 1906, where we had a Brigade Camp, and, of course, Brigade sports, they also won. 1907 saw us encamped at Welshpool, and here again they not only were the winners f of the regimental prize, but went over to the camp of the Shropshires at Westbury and beat all comers. Builth was the scene of their next win, and in Brigade camp in 1909, out of fifteen teams, our boys came out top and still retained their good name. This year again saw them the winners, after an easy pull, making a record total of twenty victorious pulls. Great praise is due to their sturdy little coach, who is none other than Sergt. Tom Howells, who I thoroughly knows his business, and who gets the beit from his men. The following is the team Sergt.-Major G. Holloway, Sergt. Tom Davies, Corpl. T. Whitticase. Corpl. J. Evans, Tpr. E. Owen, and Tpr. W illiams. Tuesday. lo-day we are to be inspected by the Brigadier, Colonel Merrick, and orders re- ceived were that the regiment will form up. in mass facing north on Two Tumps for inspection by the Brigadier at 9-30 a.m. Squadrons will march out of camp at 8 a.m., and rendezvous in rear of markers at 9-15 a.m. As usual, we were up to time, and were already formed up when the Bri- gadier arrived, and after inspecting horses and men, he complimented the Colonel on; the smart appearance of the regiment. He specially commented on the horses whicli, taken as a whole, were the best that the regiment, had ever seen. He was also especially pleased wijth the non-commis- sioned officers, and was glad to find they knew their work so well. In the afternoon the squadron leaders inspected arms ,saddlerv, and tents, pre- vious to the inspection'by the Brigadier. The officers of the regiment presented each squadron with a silver cup to be held for one year by the troop which obtained the greatest number of marks for efficiency in drill and best horses, and was won by the following troops A squad., Llanfair Troop. Sergt. D. R. Jones B, Guilsfield Troop. Sergt. H. K. Jones C, Montgomery Troop. Sergt. C. Lewis D, Llandrindod Troon, Sergt. Williams. After the cups were handed over tv squadron leaders, the Colonel made the pre- sentation, and said that he was very pleased that this competition was in vogue, as it brought up a very good natured rivalry bet- ween troops, and tended to bring up the standard of the regiment. About thirty-five horses turned out in the competition for the best trooper in the regiment, and some exceptionally fine mounts were shown. The Brigadier, who judged, had a very hard task in allotting the cup, which went to Tpr. Martin Hollo- way, of C Squadron, the second place being given to Sgt.-Major Stokes, A Squadron. 11 cl I 1 -11 y squadron also obtained the cup lor secur- ing the highest number of marly; at the sports. Sergt.-Major Grice won the cup for the best shot in the regiment. Of all the troops the greatest praise is due to the Mont- gomery Troop, who returned home having in their possession a trio of cups. It is a troop of fine men, who know their work well, be it sport or duty in the field-finc- horsemen and good shots, and Sergt.-Major Holloway may well be proud of this troop. In the evening a terrific thunderstorm broke over the camp, and lasted several hours. The lightning was very vivid, and the thunder was appaling, and gave a ter- rible task to the line guard to look after the horses, which were tugging and plunging at their ropes, and not a few broke loose during the night. The rain came down in torrents, and made the camp ground a veri- table puddle. Wednesday. The troops were roused at "Reveille," and were very glad to find that the weather had cleared, and that there was every ap- pearance of having a fine day. Much work had to be got through during the day. The regiment was to be seen to-day by the Brigadier, and the scheme taken for in- spection was day outposts. The signallers were examined by Captain Kettlewell, of the 4th Batt. Shropshire Regiment, who seemed very pleased with the work done, and a good report is expected. The regiment marched out of canm at 8 a.m., and proceeded to the hills to -take up the outpost scheme. At ten o'clock all was ready and in position, and some really good work was shown, and the BrigadieV was very satisfied, especially with the work of the non-commissioned officers. The men. too, received great praise from the Bri- gadier, who said that as far as he saw they all entered into the spirit of the scheme. and knew just what was expected from them. The regiment returned to camp looking very pleased with themselves, although drenched by a heavy downpour of rain. In the evening the troops were asked for Volunteers who agreed to accept liability for service abroad, and about 150 responded and signed the necessary papers before the Commanding Officer. At night we were destined to have another thunderstorm, which continued for some hours, accompanied by torrential rain, which made the camp ground worse than ever. However, we slept through it all. and although our clothes were damped, our ardour was still unaffected *8. Thursday. Our last day has come, and we are very sorry. Reveille sounded at 4-30 a.m. and we were bustling about in a few minutes. Our Colonel, in his final remarks to the troops, wished to express to all ranks his high appreciation of the good, work done during the training, and especially of the high state of discipline and smartness shown universally by the regiment. He also hoped that leaders of all ranks will take every opportunity of improving their know- ledge by attending the various courses and by interesting themselves in any papers set on the different subjects of their duties in camp and in the field, and so enable them to be efficient instructors by thn com- mencement of next training. Our training ground was one of the best in England, and I should not be surprised if it is made annually the training ground of some unit or other. This is the second camp that we have had in New- town, and although the weather was not quite so good as the last time, we have enjoyed ourselves very much, and will b going to attend to our civil duties feeling very much better for the training.

LLANBADARNFYNYDD. A LAMPLXSS CYCLIST. -A.Ifred Davies, farm servant, Llaust. Llandewv, was fined Is and 5s 6d oosts at Penybont SeFsi, Jl5 for riding a bicycle without a light. Constable Johns said defendant had no lamp, and the latter stated that he was riding behind a trap and had a friend walking with him. A TIPSY LABOURER.—George Wozercraft, farm labourer. Goitre, Llananno, was summoned at Penybont Sessions for being drunk and disorderly at Llanbadarn on May 18th. He did not appear. P.C. Johns said that this was the night of the May fair at Llanbadarn-fynydd, and about nine o'clock he saw Wozencraft outside the Rose and Crown Inn very drunk. He afterwards went inside and witness followed and told the landlady to get him off the premises. Defendant then came outside and walked up and down the road using very bad language, and fell down twice. Afterwards he returned to the Rose and Crown and tried to obtain more drink, and witness told him that unless he went away he should have to lock him up. Eventually he went home. He was there about an hour altogether, and being fair day there was a lot of people about.—By the Chairman Witness did not see him served at the Rose and Crown, but understood he had bad some of the drink there.—The Chairman said that if they got men into that state the matter wanted looking into. A fine of 5s, with 5s 6d oosts, was imposed.
