122. Shaw Redway Strickland

SHAW STRICKLAND RETURNING
Word was received on Saturday last from Private Shaw Strickland that he was leaving England within the next few days, and returning home to Australia. The Forties soldier was early in the firing line, and not long there before he received a bullet through the shoulder. Since then he has been convalescing in Egypt and England, and it would appear that the wound does not heal, and may take some time more to do so. Shaw will receive a royal reception on his return to his native town.

137. Percy Herbert Strickland

Percy Strickland.
The following concerning tbe late Percy Strickland appears in the ' Evening Observer,' Brisbane :— We present to our jreaders a picture of Percy Strickland, who met his death while following his profession as a jockey at the opening of the Q.T.C.Winter Meeting on Saturday last The circumstances of his death we are well acquainted with, and it will suffice to say that his untimely end, happening in the way it did, cast quite a gloom in sporting circles. Percy was a credit to bis profession, and was one of the most popular jockeys that ever strode a horse in Queensland. He was 24 years of age, and was born at Orange, New South Wales, on 26th February, 1876. He servie his apprenticeship with the well-known Sydney trainer, Tom Lamond, and afterwards was attached to tbe stable of Tom Ivory, who had a great estimation of Percy's ability as a jockey, and spoke of him as a second Donald Nicholson, never for a moment thinking he wwould meet the same fate as that unfortunate lad. Strickland rode manny winners in Sydney, and was eminently successful in the country districts of the parent colony. On coming to Queensland nine years ago, Strickland, by bis manly and modest demeanour, at once became popular, and made a host of friends. As a jockey he was in the front rank, and rode no end of winners, his prinoipal victories in Brisbane were the Guard in the Derby, Babel in the Sangate Handicap, and the Baker and Splendide in the Midsummer handicap. Ths funeral, in which , his Excellency the Governor was represented, on Sunday was one of the largest ever seen in Brisbrane, and showed tbe respect in which the unfortunate lad was held by all classes.
