An excellent flier

Four men with connections to Sulhamstead had different experiences in the war.

THE WAR
The flying of 2nd Flight Lieut. Gerald Merton is so excellent that he has been given a permanent appointment as Instructor at the Depot.

Mr George Leake has been given a commission as 2nd Lieutenant in the 3rd, 4th City of London Royal Fusiliers.

Lieutenant A. Grimshaw is now out of danger. The authorities felt that he must be moved from the noise of London, so he has been transferred to Sutton Place, the residence of Lord Northcliffe, who has placed it as a hospital at the disposal of the Government.

ROLL OF HONOUR
Lieutenant W. Edwards, of the Black Watch, killed in France in the Expeditionary Forces. Lieut. Edwards was formerly a pupil at the Rectory.
