CHRISTMAS Day at Union House was, as in previous years, celebrated in a manner calculated to afford a full measure of enjoyment to the inmates. Tastefully decorated with holly and evergreen, the buildings presented quite a festive appearance. In the morning the inmates attended Divine Service and dinner was served in the large hall at 12.30. The excellent repast provided was supplemented with poultry and game sent by Viscount Hambleden, Sir Frank Crisp, Mr W D Mackenzie and Mr Wilson Noble.

News has been received by Mr and Mrs W A Davis, of Queen Street, Henley, that their eldest son, Pte William A Davis, of the 2nd Battalion Royal Fusiliers, died on November 30 while on active service with the British Expedition Force, the cause of death being exposure. Pte Davis, who was only 20 years of age, was an old member of the Trinity Hall Lads’  Brigade.

Speaking at a meeting of Henley Town Council, Alderman Clements said the stiles in the path leading from Vicarage Road to Harpsden Lane ought to be removed as they were exceedingly inconvenient both for children and the elderly people who use the path.
