The genial chairman in his opening speech asked the company (about 50 in number), to drink to the health of the King, and in a few touching remarks said that the two departing guests were perhaps pleased at having the op- portunity of seeing a little of the outside world, yet in this case as in every thing, there was a tinge of Tegret at having to leave the numerous friends they had made during the time they had been stationed at Pembroke Dock. During the evening Mr. Marren and Mr. Tidbury were presented by the vice-chair- man with a pipe, each given by the A.S.C. detachment at Pembroke Dock, while the form- er was also presented with a handsome Malacca stick given by his brother catholics at Pembroke Dock.
