First Anniversary of the Pipeclay Club - 16 May 1882

The first anniversary of the Pipeclay Club was celebrated last night at the club rooms, Victoria Arcade Hotel, Little Collins street. By 9 o'clock the tidy and comfortable apartments occupied by the club were crowded with members, and numbers who were unable to attend, including Colonol Hutton sent apologies, accompanied with wishes for "many happy returns of the day". Some time was spent in social intercourse, the conversation turning, as a matter of course, to the proposed re-organisation of the volunteer force - a subject the opinions of most of the officers on which have been already published. Eventually the members assembled in the luncheon- room and Major Caleb Anderson proposed the toast of "Her Majesty the Queen", which was drunk with characteristic loyalty.

Presentation to Captain Ferguson - 23 September 1882

The quarterly supper of the Pipeclay Club was held at Melbourne on the 14th inst., on which occasion a Captain G. Ferguson was the recipient of a pleasing compliment. A number of that gentleman's brother officers in the force, hearing of his approaching departure to settle in South Australia, determined to take advantage of the meeting to hand to him a souvenir of the esteem in which he is held. After the usual loyal toasts had been proposed, Major J. M. Templeton, the president of the club, presented to Captain Ferguson a handsome tea and coffee service, suitably engraved, also a beautiful album for Mrs. Ferguson, with the compliments of the Pipeclay Club.
