Proud of our men

More men had joined from Theale.

FOR KING AND COUNTRY.
Frederick Warwick … Royal Berkshire Regiment.
William Fisher … … Royal Garrison Artillery.
William Hill … … 16th Lancers.

The rector believes there are others who have joined, and he will be glad to received their names and regiments. A complete Roll will shortly be drawn up and placed in the Church Porch.

Mr. FRED DAVIS.
We congratulate Mr. Fred Davis on the distinction he has won in the service of his country. Mr Davis, R.A.M.C. has been honourably mentioned in Dispatches, and has been given a Commission. He is now Lieutenant Quarter Master Davis. He also holds the South African Medal, the King’s Medal for South Africa, and the 18 Years’ Good Conduct Medal. His old parish and his home are proud of him.
