Dr Krumbholz, of Rugby, Captain Royal Army Medical Corps, has been transferred from the 7th to th 8th Battalion Royal Warwickshire Regiment in which he is now embodied.
Lieut R H Over, v.s,Warwickshire Yeomanry.
Three members of the Rugby Master Builders’ Association have gone on service, viz, Mr P H Wykeham (a director of Messrs Foster & Dicksee, Ltd), Mr J J Fawcett and Mr W H Taplin.
A J Harris, son of Mr A Harris, of Dunchurch Road, Rugby, and the newly-elected vice-captain of the Rugby Football Club, has been accepted as a member of the MotorCyclists’ Corps attached to the Royal Engineers. When in Rugby School he attained the rank of corporal in the O.T.C, and it was probably this fact that caused the authorities to get in touch with him. On responding to the invitation and presenting himself at headquarters A J Harris found quite a number of Old Rugbeians from Oxford and Cambridge had volunteered for similar duties, so he was at once in the midst of old acquaintances and friends, including L E P Grubb, another member of the “Town” House.
