PostSubject: Lieutenant-Colonel Gerald Lionel Joseph Goff.   Thu May 27, 2010 10:11 pm

Lieutenant-Colonel Gerald Lionel Joseph Goff, of the 1st Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, was the eldest surviving son of the late Mr. Joseph Goff, of Burton Grange, Herts, by his marriage with Lady Adelaide Henrietta Louise Hortense, a daughter of the second Earl of Ranfurly. He was born on March 8, 1855, and entered the army on March 10, 1875, from the Militia, being posted as a lieutenant to the 91st Foot (now the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders). He obtained his company on July 1, 1884, and was adjutant of the 1st Volunteer Battalion of the North Staffordshire Regiment from January 2, 1888, to January 1, 1893. He reached the rank of major on September 21, 1892, and that of lieutenant-colonel on July 23, 1898. This was not his first service in South Africa, he having taken part with the 91st Highlanders in the Zulu war of 1879, when he was present at the action of Gingindhlovu and the relief of Ekowe, for which he had the medal with clasp. He was a magistrate for Hants and Wilts, and resided at Hale Park, Salisbury. He married in 1894 Ellen, the youngest daughter of Sir Robert Dundas, of Arniston, Midlothian, who survives him.

Single officer's quarters at British School of Gunnery. 1871. Yellow stock brick with brick ridge stacks and slate hipped roof. Double-depth plan. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys and basement; 21-window range. Long symmetrical front articulated by giant pilaster strips, paired to entrance bays, to overhanging eaves, with plat bands to ground and first floors. Doorways to the centre and 4 bays from the ends, with an inserted entrance in the right-hand bay, with rubbed brick segmental-arched heads to doorways with 3-pane overlights and double 4-panel doors, and 6/6-pane sashes; short bridge steps span the basement area with coped walls; the later right-hand doorway has a concrete bridge with iron railings. Rear has 3 attached ablution towers. INTERIOR: stairs from the entrances have metal balusters and curtails, to altered rooms, originally front and back of a spine wall with fireplaces. HISTORY: the British School of Gunnery opened in 1859, and the Long Course started on 1860. The barracks provided accommodation for the RA involved in testing guns, ammunition and armour for the army and navy. (Glennie D: Gunners Town: History of Shoeburyness: Civic Publications: 1948-).

Again thank's JY..

I had cause to visit Shoeburyness Ranges more than thirty years ago. A very strange landscape of sea marshes with little steel bridges crossing innumerable creeks. Mile after mile of well made roads and railway lines that appear to go nowhere, all off-limits for civilians. Odd structures like the remains of aircraft on top of poles - no doubt once used for target practice. It is still there and still off-limits. Take a look at Foulness Island on Google Earth.

Les,

The Officers’ Mess has been converted to a six-bedroom house, currently on sale for a mere £5,000,000.

Same as me Gary, i saw it and did'nt hesitate for a second.
nice that its Goff's but, after saying that i just have to have
these thing's.. the condition did'nt worry me at all, the front
board is off and the spine has gone.. but the main is intact
and i know a good little bookbinder who will rescue what he
can and then restore it to something pleasing to the eye. the
time to buy something is when you see it, there is some
competition out there stealing what is rightfully mine!.. ie, all
the books in the world which would love me as their custodian.

I dabble a bit with bookbinding myself. This is a before and after shot of a Bible I found that was in a very bad way. It was printed in 1796 and has connections to the Peninsular War. It belonged to Lt R F Oakley of the 20th Foot who served under Wellington. He was present at Vittoria, Nivelle, Orthes  and Toulouse  and was wounded in hand to hand fighting at the Battle of Roncevalles in the Pyrenees - later he was involved with his regiment in guarding Napoleon in exile on St Helena. Oakley was born in 1797 in Wimborne and died in service on 2 June 1835 in India having previously lost two of his young children. All is recorded in the Bible. These personal artefacts need to be rescued.
