A Hundred Years Ago

REV Edward Smith, who succeeded Rev J Crowther as minister of the Henley Wesleyan Church

REV Edward Smith, who succeeded Rev J Crowther as minister of the Henley Wesleyan Church in September last, has enlisted as a private in the Royal Army Medical Corps. He announced his intention to his congregation on Sunday evening last at the close of an earnest appeal in the course of which he said it was the duty of every eligible Christian man to take his place in the ranks. We understand that Mr Smith left Henley on Tuesday to enter upon his new duties.

Mr C Clements Adam, a grandson of Alderman Clements, of Henley, has been given a commission in the Royal Field Artillery and is now stationed at Oxford for a special course of training. When the war broke out he enlisted in the Westminster Dragoons and became a sergeant. He was transferred to the Army Motor Corps and served in France as a despatch rider.

Mr and Mrs Denton, of Friday Street, Henley, have received a postcard stating that their second son, L Corp F H Denton, Royal Engineers, was wounded, a bullet passing through his thigh. Corp Denton is in a hospital in France where he is progressing favourably.
