PostSubject: GEORGE THOMSON MACLEROY   Tue Mar 09, 2010 10:15 pm

The son of the late Mr George Macleroy, for many years General Manager of the Natal Bank, was born at Pietermaritzburg on the 7th November, 1856, and entered the High School about the year 1867. He remained at the school for six years, occupying, when he left, a prominent position in the Upper Room. During this period he won for himself many friends, and on more than one occasion was awarded the Good-Fellowship Prize by them. He was greatly esteemed for his kind and genial disposition, and will long be remembered for his wit and humour ; as a caricaturist, also, he was much appreciated. On leaving school he entered into commercial life, and by close attention to duty gave promise of a successful future. Shortly before the Zulu War he joined the Natal Carbineers, and, like so many of his comrades, did not survive the action at Isandhlwana, 22nd January, 1879. At a subsequent date his remains were removed to the City cemetery by his sorrowing parents.

Natal Carbineer. Be fairly hard pressed to find one.
