Barry, one of the eight remaining members of the 1890 Pioneer Corps resident in Southern Rhodesia, died in Salisbury Hospital a few weeks ago. Captain Barry was one of the 22 early pioneers who were presented with the freedom of the city at the last Occupation Day ceremony on September 12. Jack Barry was born at Swellendam, Cape Province, on August 10, 1863, he was for some years in the service of the Standard Bank. He went to Barberton in 1885 and afterwards to Johannesburg. On leaving the bank in 1886 he joined the Johannesburg Stock Exchange and was one of the pioneers of the Witwatersrand. When volunteers were called for Rhodes' Pioneer Corps Captain Barry, with 12 men from the Rand, joined the expedition on May 22, 1890, at Mafeking. He accompanied the column to Salisbury and was present at the hoisting of the Union Jack at Fort Salisbury, signifying the formal occupation of Mashonaland. After the disbandment of the column Captain Barry began prospecting for gold in a party in which were the Hon. Lionel Cripps and Messrs. Charles and Harry Lovemore. They worked in Mazoe Valley, where Captain Barry found ancient workings and pegged them. Serving with the Imperial Light Horse in the Anglo-Boer War Captain Barry was at the relief of Ladysmith and the relief of Mafeking. In the Great War he served in the South-West African Campaign [with the Cape Peninsular Rifles in Botha's Army, 1 October 1914 to 13 August 1916] and afterwards went to France with the 1st Cape Native Labour Corps.
