A fine body of men

Ascot welcomed a Kent regiment.


We were glad to welcome four Companies of the Royal West Kent Regiment, now stationed in the neighbourhood, to their first Church Parade here on Sunday, November 22nd, and the Bellringers gave them a welcoming peal.

The men, who completely filled the Church, joined heartily in the short service, and in spite of the difficulty of providing them at such short notice with sufficient hymn books, it was stirring to hear the singing of the well known hymns by such a fine body of men.

Several of the men also attended the Evening service and if desired we hope to arrange a special early celebration of the Holy Communion at 7 a.m. once a month.
