Sergt. A. L. Holmes
Regimental No. 2373
Died January 12, 1905
Age 41
From the Annual Report: "I regret to record the death of Reg. No. 2373, Sergt. A. L. Holmes, which occurred on January 12, he being at the time in charge of the Forty Mile detachment. Though not very well for some days, he attached no importance to the indisposition. On the night of his death after resting on his bed, another member of the detachment being also in the room, he attempted to rise to go out and fell back on the bed, dying in a few moments from heart disease."
