Samuel Horace Priest was Captain of The Newcastle Tramway Miniature Rifle Club which was officially opened on 6 March 1907. He was dismissed from his position as a tram driver at Port Macquarie in March 1911 because of breaches of rules in February of that year and his unsatisfactory record. The union appealed on his behalf but to no avail. He died at his home at Swansea on 17 February 1946. The funeral service was held at T.Moore's Private Chaplain at Hamilton and then to the Beresfield Crematorium. Members of the Belmont Branch No.11869 of the GUOOF of which Priest was a member were invited to attend the funeral.
