Clewer girls knit for the troops

Pupils at St Stephen’s Intermediate Girls’ School were busy knitting for the soldiers.  The recipients of their bounty were probably the Lancashire Fusiliers.

December 8th 1914

The following garments for soldiers have been made & dispatched to the Lan: Fus:
62 pairs socks + 4 prs
51 body belts +2
30 prs mittens + 30 prs
[‘+ second’ is in another hand]
A special request has been made for more mittens, so some extra time will be given to needlework for the present in order to complete them by Xmas if possible.
Total sum subscribed £8.10.0
