One of the last survivors of the Crimean War and Indian Mutiny passed away in the person of Capt. J. A. Caldecott, at Long Lawford on Thursday week. Capt. Caldecott had been in failing health for two years, and his last illness was very painful.\
John Alexander Caldecott was the second son of the late Mr. Charles M. Caldecott, of Holbrook Grange, Long Lawford, and Grandson of the late Mr. Abraham Caldecott, of the Lodge, Rugby, who as High Sheriff represented the county of Warwick at the Coronation of King George IV at Westminster on July 19th, 1821. He was born in India in 1836, and was educated at Bradfield College. As a young man he chose an Army career, and held a commission in the old 38th Regiment, serving in the Crimean War, and through the Siege of Sevastopol and later in the Indian Mutiny, when he was present at the relief of Lucknow. He afterwards exchanged into the 35th Regiment and retired from the Army in the seventies with the rank of Captain. He has since lived at Long Lawford, where he was generally loved by reason of his kindly disposition and readiness to help all in need.}
