MILITARY FUNERALS

Infections disease continues to take toll of the Scottish Territorials in our town, and last week two members the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders died at the Goldington-road Schools Isolation Hospital. The 8th were formerly billeted in that district, but for some weeks have been located in Howbury Park, and from here the men's respective companies marched on Monday morning in order to give their late comrades-in-arms full military honours. The deceased soldiers were Corpl. Ewen McColl, aged 22, and Pte. Robert McPherson, aged 18. The coffins were wrapped in a Union Jack, on which reposed the men's glengarries, their bayonets and belts. Through the town, as theprocession passed from the Borough Mortuary to the Cemetery, every respect and sympathy was shown. Each column was headed by a firing party from the man’s company, and the Battalion Pipe Band, the coffin being drawn on a gun carriage supplied by the Highland Divisional Artillery, by six beautiful black horses. The funeral service look place on the hill-side, where there is now, alas, quite a colony Scottish graves, the Rev. Herbert Reid, Chaplain, officiating in each, and over the open grave three volleys were fired and the Last Post sounded.

On Wednesday morning in High-afreet, the strains of the "Flower of the Forest” invited respect for the funeral of Pte. J. Cowie, "E" Co., 5th Gordons, who died of diphtheria in the Infections Diseases Hospital. Captain J. Watson was in charge, with Lieuts. Moir and Walton, and the medical officer in charge was Major H. R. Waite, R.A.M.C. The chaplain ofthe Brigade, the Rev. Mr. Scott, conducted the service at the cemetery, where three volleys were fired over the grave, the pipes playing the "Point of War” between each, and the Last Post was sounded.

The melancholy strains of “The Flowers of the Forest" and the slow marching of a column headed by a firing with reversed arms through High-Street on Wednesday afternoon, told of yet another young Highland life laid down while training to serve King and Country. It was the fourth Highland military funeral of the week, and the fifth will follow to-day. Pte. Donald McKinnon died on Sunday. He belonged to Harris, and was 29 years of age. He came to Bedford in the Scottish inversion, with the 4th Camerons, but was transferred later to the Reserve Battalion, and the arrangements for the obsequies yesterday were under the command of Lieut.
