12 November 1869A telegram was received at the Admiralty yesterday forenoon announcing the death of Rear-Admiral Warden, C.B. senior officer on the coast of Ireland, which occurred at 10 o'clock at Queenstown, after a short illness. The deceased Admiral entered the service at an early age, and obtained his commission as lieutenant in September, 1828; was promoted to commander in 1838; and obtained post rank in July, 1845. He was commander of the Medea, serving on the coast of Syria, in 1840; and was engaged on active service during the Russian War. He for some time commanded the Channel Squadron, and on relinquishing that command succeeded Rear-Admiral Claude H.M. Buckle C.B. as senior officer on the coast of Ireland. In recognition of his services afloat he was made a Companion of the Order of the Bath in July, 1855. He obtained the rank of Rear-Admiral on the 12th of September, 1863. By the gallant officers demise Capt Sir William S. Wiseman, K.C.B., obtains flag rank, and thereby a captain's good-service pension is placed at the disposal of the First Lord of the Admiralty.
