"A fine record is of Mr John Patey of Glebe Street who has over forty years’ military service to his credit. A native of Reading he joined the Royal Marines at the of 17 and on being discharged in 1868 enlisted in the 32nd Foot with who he went to the Cape. He was in Grahamstown in 1870 when the jubilee of the British taking possession of Cape Colony was celebrated. Seven years later when the 32nd Foot were returning home he transferred to the 80th Foot with whom he served in the Zulu war. At the battle of Ulundi on July 4 1879 he had many narrow escapes when comrades around him were shot down. It was in 1891 that left his regiment in Dublin and was appointed sergeant instructor to the volunteers Wolverhampton remaining there until 1902 when he recieved his discharge. He tried hard to get sent abroad for Boer War but was too old. In 1910 he acted for twelve months as an instructor to the Walsall Territorials and the day after the War broke out walked to Lichfield, although 65 years of age, to join up. There he did good service training recruits and also in opening recruiting stations at Old Hill and West Bromwich"
