Funeral – John Russell

The following extract is from the Lisburn Herald dated 11th December 1909.

Military funeral at Ballinderry

The funeral of John Russell, a mutiny veteran of the 102nd Foot, took place at the Middle (Jeremy Taylor) Church, Ballinderry on Monday. Through the thoughtful intervention of Mr. Harry Pakenham of Langford Lodge, and the kind permission of Colonel Fortesque, a military party, consisting of a colour-sergeant, a corporal and twelve riflemen, attended to do the last honours to an old comrade. The cortege was extremely large and respectable, great interest being taken in the military ceremony, which was most impressive, the men marching slowly, with reversed arms behind the body to the place of interment. Rev. J.H. Minchin, vicar of the parish, read the beautiful service of the church, and afterwards three volleys were fired, and the bugler sounded the "Last Post." A beautiful wreath was placed on the old veteran’s grave. The deceased was of a quiet, retiring disposition, and was much respected in the neighbourhood. He was 86 years of age, and carried his years well, and never tired of recounting the thrilling scenes of the mutiny campaign, especially at Cawnpore and Lucknow. His last years were rendered comfortable by the tender solitude of Mrs. Harry Pakenham and Mrs. McClintock of Glendaragh.
