Herefordshire Regiment Visits Ledbury - "CONCENTRATION" IN THE TOWN
Ledbury was visited on Sunday by the 1st Herefordshire Regiment (T.A.) for a "concentration" It is a great many years since the Battalion visited Ledbury in full strength and residents turned out in large numbers to give them a cordial welcome.
The Battalion was about 360 strong, the Ledbury ( "C" Company) being under Capt. J. R. N. JEFFERY, and the Ross ( "B" Company) under Capt. BUTCHER. Col. SLEEMAN, commanding officer, and Capt. GREEN (adjutant) were present. The Battalion was given an official welcome by the chairman of the Urban Council (Mr. Ernest JUCKES), and a drum-head service was afterwards held in the Market place, the Rector of Ledbury (Rev F. W. CARNEGY) officiating. In the afternoon the Battalion marched down High-street, where Sir John COTTERELL. Lord Lieutenant of Herefordshire took the salute.
