CONSIDERABLE interest was taken in a large convoy of motor lorries which passed through Henley yesterday. There were more than 60 of them, and all were commercial vehicles which had been taken on by the Army Authorities for the duration of the war. They had come a very long distance and Henley was made the halting place for dinner, the cars in the meantime being placed in the Market Place and Hart Street, the former being practically filled with vehicles.

Mr Marcus Van Raatle, of Brook Street and Austin Friars, merchant, who died on April 21, aged 83, leaving a fortune of £915,933, bequeathed a legacy of £1,000 to Sir Frank Crisp, Bart.

An unprecedented number of enquiries for furnished apartments are being received by Messrs Oldacres and Simms, FAI, the local house agents and auctioneers, and those who have rooms available should immediately acquaint the agents.
