THE LATE MAJOR-GENERAL A.W. GORDON.

By the demise of Lieutenant-General Alexander William Gordon one more well known figure of our insular society has been removed. The General, during late years had not taken such an active part in the sports afforded by the island, but his mind was as keen on them as ever. We remember well how he deplored the discontinuance of the drag-hunt in which pastime he took much interest. On field-days the General would be seen intently watching the incidents of the runs, encouraging by word the pack of small hounds and, usually, doing everything in his power to promote genuine sport. In another direction he was indefatigable. He was ever anxious to encourage the young generation in the art of model-yacht building and sailing, and he himself, was, by no means, an unskilled hand in drawing and constructing models with which he would repair to the Model Yacht Pond, and test their sailing qualities. In the races and in most matters concerning the Model Yacht Club he also took a most active part and was a source of great encouragement to others. His association with the island was in many respects a source of pleasure to him and we need not recapitulate at any length the many instances in which be gave ample proof thereof. He was also a promoter of the local Primrose Habitation. The General had been a member of the Royal Channel Islands Yacht Club and was also one of the first to put his name down as member of the recently formed Guernsey Yacht Club. His pen was ever ready to deal with those subjects in which he felt most interest and the columns of the local press were often resorted to by him as a medium for discussion. Major-General Gordon was stationed in Guernsey in 1875 when Colonel of the 61st Foot. He joined her Majesty's service March 11th, 1842, obtained his lieutenancy on May 3rd, 1844, and was gazetted captain four years later, namely, on December 29th, 1848. He attained his majority in January 1858, was made Lieut.-Colonel, December 27th, 1868, and Colonel on December 22nd, 1875. He retired with the rank of Major General, May, 1876. The deceased served with the 61st Regiment at the siege, assault and capture of Delhi in 1857, was present at the repulse of the sorties of 4th and 18th July, and in the action of Nujjufghur on 25th August, where he commanded the Reserve and obtained his brevet as Major (Medal with Clasp).
