    November 23rd witnessed the departure of the last of the old time Barrack Section A.S.C., in the person of Barrack Sergt-Major Thomas Kiddle,of Colchester, who was discharged under the age limit of 60 years of age, after a period of 46 years' service, 16 years of which he has served in the Colchester Command. Sergt-Major Kiddle anlisted in Her Majesty's 89th Regiment of Foot, now the 2nd Royal Irish Fusiliers, on 22nd November, 1865, and one can understand the numerous changes he has witnessed in the Army During this time. His service has been highly creditable and very interesting. He was presented at the second presentation of colours to the 89th by Her Late Majesty Queen Victoria in June 1866, and embarked for India in September 1870, with the 89th, landing an Cannanor, Madrasin in November of the same year. He served in India for 14 years. On the passage home 1884 his battalion was stopped at Aden for active service in the Soudan, and was in two engagements under General Graham-El Tab and Tamaai. For taking part in these engagements Serg-Major Kiddle received the bar for Egypt and the Khedive's Star. He arrived home in the year 1884, and was stationed at Portsmouth, and here received a good conduct medal. From Portsmouth he went to Aldershot, and on 4th February 1887 he transferred to the Barrack Section, A.S.C. Whilst stationed at Aldershot, he was present at the late Queen Victoria's Jubilee Review in the Long Valley in 1887. He was appointed Barrack Colour-Sergeant in 1988, and promoted to the rank of Barrack QM-Sergeant in November 1889, and received the warrant rank in December 1894. He was present at the coronation of His Majesty King George (the fifth) which took place this year.
    Sergt-Major Kiddle, who is a soldier to the core, has three sons serving in the A.S.C., and one of his daughters is married to a Sergeant in the King's Royal Rifles. He has served the lengh of service for the meritorous service medal, and was hoping to receive it before he retired from the Army.
