Nettlebed Parish Council, feeling that the fullest advantage should be taken of any work connected with food production, arranged for Mr A Johnstone to give a lecture in the school on Wednesday. His remarks were of a most instructive nature, including hints as to when to sow and harvest, the number of seeds required and the distance apart they should be sown.

Lieutenant T N Watts, son of Mr Joshua Watts, of Bell Street, Henley, has been awarded the Military Cross for distinguished service in the field. He was mentioned in dispatches in November last.
