Mr. Charles Edward Bernard

Mr. Charles Edward Bernard, Stationmaster, etc., at Cross Creek, was born near Dublin, Ireland, in 1847. After attending a private school in his native city, he emigrated to New Zealand, arriving in Nelson in 1868. For three years Mr. Bernard worked on a sheep station, and afterwards served in the Armed Constabulary for five years. In 1880 he joined the Railway Department as signalman at Cross Creek, and thirteen years later he was promoted to the position he now holds.
