Fire and sword in Belgium

In November the people of Burghfield had the opportunity to attend lectures on the invasion of Belgium. Proceeds went to the Prince of Wales’s Fund for refugees.

A series of lectures on subjects connected with the war, and illustrated in most cases with lantern slides, will be given at Holiday House on Wednesday evenings at 8 pm, beginning on 11th November with “Fire and Sword in Belgium”, a description, with slides, of the terrible way in which Belgium is being devastated.
The lectures will be very varied, but each one full of interest. The profits are to go to the Prince of Wales’ Fund. And it is hoped therefore that everyone in the parish will support them, so that we may send up a good sum to help those who are in distress through the War.

Details of each lecture will be announced here. Tickets for the six before Christmas may be obtained from the Hon Secretary, Holiday House, Audrey, Burghfield Common…

Admission, 1d.
