William Charles Humfrey, a very able man with a large family, who had scarcely been settled at Aldershot six months, when he was ordered off suddenly to Malta. He could not afford to be on half-pay, and, though feeling acutely his hard lot, after nearly forty years' service, he went, and almost immediately died of fever.
