The comrades of Adam Irving Loughland, a Penrith man, who had been employed in the Windermere district, took part as a member of the 1st Active Service Co. of the Border Regiment in the relief of Wepener, and there was wounded in the nose. He went into hospital and was discharged subsequently as cured. Since his return home last February he has occasionally suffered from the effects of the wound, but it was not until a few days ago that the cause of the pain was definitely ascertained. Loughland then went to a local practitioner and the bullet was extracted. His comrades have since had it mounted on a gold medal, on which there is a suitable inscription, and have presented the medal to him.

(Lancashire Daily Post, 5th December 1901)

Adam Irving Loughland was born in 1877, and was living in the Kendal area in the 1911 census. He doesn't appear in the Cumberland & Westmorland Gazette's list of WW1 servicemen.
