A VERY successful fete and sale was held at Riverside Bungalow, Wargrave, (kindly lent by Mr W E Cain) in aid of Miss Choate’s war depot, known as the Wargrave Surgical Dressing Emergency Society and now an approved society under the War Office. Since the branch was founded more than 18 months ago, several others have been affiliated, including Shiplake, Peppard, Pangbourne and Wimbledon. Most excellent work is done in sending sterilised dressings and comforts to casualty clearing stations and field ambulances on all the allied fronts in France and Gallipoli.

The vicar of Shiplake, Rev C A W Aylen, announced in church on Sunday that he had been appointed a chaplain for the navy for a year or the period of the war, with the full approval of his bishop, and he would shortly be leaving to take up his duties on a large ship.

On Saturday, June 24 another link was severed at Crocker End in the call home of Mrs Richard Willgoss, of the Carpenter’s Arms, who died leaving a husband and seven children to mourn her loss. Mrs Willgoss was much respected and some beautiful floral tributes were placed on her grave. The funeral service and was taken by the Rev P Armitage.
