100 Years Ago...

A LITTLE boy named Albert E Hayward met with an accident last week in the school playground in Wargrave during the midday interval. With  others, he was playing football and fell, dislocating his right arm. He was taken to Dr J McCrea’s surgery and attended to and is now going on  satisfactorily.

Capt Adjt E Lucas Salier, of the 2/6th Fusiliers, who has been awarded the Military Cross and the Legion of Honour, rowed in the diamonds at Henley in 1913, when he was beaten by the winner of the final, McVilly of Tasmania. His awards have been given for services either in the Cameroons or in Flanders, in both of which places he has fought. He was wounded in Flanders in May last, when he lost his right thumb, and is now in Salonika.

The Highmoor Ladies’ Guild, presided over by Mrs Hughes, continues to meet weekly at the vicarage for the purpose of making comforting garments for our soldiers. Since Christmas two parcels of comforts, including socks, shirts, mittens and wraps, have been sent to local men serving with the Expeditionary Force. Several letters have been received.
