I doubt whether residents of Goldstone Street and Clarendon Road have witnessed such an occasion before, or since, as the final journey of Sergeant S Elliott on April 18th 1908.
Whilst the uniformed men’s uniforms appear police like, the presence of the Gun Carriage, together with rifles for the final salute at the committal, indicate the answer lies in military records.
Do you know the history of Sargeant S Elliott? If you can help, please leave a comment below.
