Sebastopol Day - 8 September 1900

Veterans at Government House
Old Soldiers Entertained by the Governor

His Excellency is to-day celebrating Sebastopol Day by entertaining veterans of the army and navy at luncheon at Government House. Tables are laid in the ballroom, which has been tastefully decorated for the occasion under the direction of the Countess of Ranfurly.

The reception is to extend from 2 to 5 o'clock. Only two toasts will be given by the Governor - "The Queen" and "Lord Roberts and our Forces in South Africa."

A recitation is to be given by Miss Stidolph (the daughter of a veteran), and Messrs. John Prouse and E. J. Hill will sing.

Of the 200 invitations issued by Lord Ranfurly, 136 were accepted. A number of the guests came into Wellington by last night's and this morning's trains from all parts of the Island from New Plymouth on the west and Napier on the east coast.

In the list of invitations given hereunder, some of the records of the old soldiers have not been obtained, and the initials "N.Z." after the names mean that the veteran wears the New Zealand medal. There are no less than fifty Crimean veterans on the list, which will be found to include a few names of men who do not wear medals.
