Arthur Bosley

VOLUNTEER FUNERAL. - The mortal remains of Arthur Bosley, aged 18, late bugler to the Newbury (E) Company, Berks Volunteers, were interred with military honours at the Newbury Cemetery, on Tuesday. The Volunteers, including the Hungerford contingent, mustered some 70 strong, and “fell in" in the Corn Exchange, and were subsequently marched to the residence of the deceased, under the command of Captain Somerset, together with the Newbury Town Band, of which deceased was a member.

The funeral procession, which started at military slow march to the strains of the Dead March in Saul, the drums being muffled, was led by a firing party of twelve, under Col-Sergt Higgs, following which came the band, and then the hearse, the coffin being covered with a Union Jack, on which were placed deceased's helmet and bugle, together with several wreaths, including one from his fellow-workmen, the employees of Mr. R. J. Lovell, and another from the Town Band, the bearers being Privates E. Smith, A. Lipscombe, E. Leonard, and S. Knight. The rear was brought up by the residue of the Company two deep.

The service at the cemetery was conducted by the Rev. J. Pate, and, at the close, the firing party discharged the usual three volleys over their departed comrade.

There was a large number of spectators, but the police wisely refused them admission until after the service. The Volunteers and band returned to the Market-place, via St. John's-road and Cheap-street, to the strains of "The Stranger" and "Old Brigade" marches, and were dismissed in the Corn Exchange.

The firing party included the following:—Corporal Ferris, Privates Pearce, James, Freebody, Vyner, W. H. Long, Savage, Cook, Andrews, Langton, Hassell and Bannister. The funeral arrangements were carried out by Mr. A. Bailey, of Thatcham.
