Letters and buns

The soldiers’ club run by Newbury parish church was popular among the men.

The Wharf Mission Room continues to be well patronised by the soldiers, many letters are written there, many buns are eaten, and from time to time whist drives are held. There was also a concert on October 19th, at which Sergeant Donovan took the chair, and at which a number of the men performed, with the assistance of other ladies and gentlemen. Support in money and gifts is still welcome.
