L/Cpl Luck had an unpleasant experience while taking part in the Royal Engineers? pontoon-bridging operations which were conducted near Henley Bridge on Saturday morning. He was one of a pontoon crew who caught a ?crab? and, losing his balance, was precipitated into mid-stream. Being a good swimmer, he kept himself afloat despite the fact that he was handicapped by heavy jack boots. After rescuing his cap, which was going with the stream, he managed to reach his pontoon in safety, little the worse for his unpremeditated cold bath.
At a meeting of the Henley Golf Club committee held recently, it was decided, on account of the war, to suspend entrance fees for both ladies and gentlemen joining the club until further notice. Mr H R Blaker, the hon secretary, will be pleased to send full particulars to any lady or gentleman wishing to join the club.
