Grease on the floor

Soldiers using a Maidenhead school over the summer holidays didn’t leave it in a very good state.

31st August 1915

School opened this morning with a very good attendance, & twelve new pupils were admitted…

The school had been cleaned & floors scrubbed, but they are still very badly marked with grease stains left by the soldiers who had use of the premises during vacation.
