THE Henley March fair was held on Wednesday when Messrs Simmons & Sons conducted their annual sale of cart horses, nags and colts at the White Hart Hotel. Nags were not in great demand but there was some keen bidding for cart horses despite there not being a large entry. A brown seven-year-old cart gelding, the property of Mr A Fleming, of Warren Row, realised the top price of 85 guineas, the purchaser being Mr D Piercey, of Henley.
A game of attack and defence was indulged by the Henley and Hambleden scouts on Wednesday in the neighbourhood of Greenlands and Open Grove, Marlow Road. The Hambleden scouts, some 25 strong, marched from the village at about 6.30pm to defend the lodge gates at Greenlands. Their opponents left Henley at about the same time and were called upon to attack the gates.
The list for war honours published on Monday contained the name Lt Herbert Reginald Murless, Royal Fusiliers, upon whom the Military Cross has been conferred. The gallant officer, who was a brother of Mr R A Murless, veterinary surgeon, of Hart Street, Henley, was recently reported to have died from his wounds.
