By the death of Mr. Alfred William Harris, licensee of the “Adam and Eve,” Greenham-road, which occurred after a protracted illness on Thursday, the local Province of the R.A.O.B loses one of its most zealous and valued members. Mr. Harris, who was 63 years of age, was largely responsible for the resuscitation of Buffaloism in Newbury after the Great War. He served as Deputy Provincial Grand Primo in 1925, and Provincial Grand Primo 1926, and had attained the Order of Knight of Merit.


He was the founder of the “Lancaster” Lodge, Hungerford, and the “Hartley” Lodge, Cold Ash. The tea which the R.A.O.B. give annually to poor children of the town, claimed his special interest, while he was never so active as in furthering the benevolent work of the Order.


The funeral took place on Tuesday at the Newtown-road Cemetery, and was attended by forty members in regalia, representing all the Lodges in the Province. The Buffalo service was read by Brother C. Osmond at the graveside, while the Rev. F.D. Briscoe conducted the service in the chapel. A number of beautiful wreaths were contributed, including one from the Lodges in the district and one from his own Lodge, “The Jack of Newbury”.
