Turning Back the Pages

A SOMEWHAT serious motor accident took place in Nettlebed Wood at about 6.30 on Sunday evening, when a collision took place between a motorcycle being ridden by an ASC officer and a motor car belonging to Rev P Armitage. The officer was very severely wounded and conveyed to Reading Hospital. The radiator of the car was broken in and the motorcycle was a complete wreck.

From an advertisement on page one it will be seen that a lecture on the cultivation of potatoes will be given in the Congregational Hall, Reading Road, on Tuesday evening next at 7.15 and we strongly urge all amateur gardeners (both ladies and gentlemen) to attend. It is very necessary that they should know the best sorts of potatoes to grow and the most suitable soils to ensure success. Mr Heaton, who will deliver the lecture, possesses practical knowledge and will be pleased to answer questions.

Captain Cecil Herbert Peck, only son of Mr H H Peck, of Surrey Lodge, Henley, has been promoted to the rank of major. Maj Peck, who is 23, went to the front as a 2nd Lieutenant in the autumn of 1914 and has been on active service in France ever since. It is a distinction for one so young to rise to the rank of major and we heartily congratulate him.
