A gallant but homeless army

Cookham Dean parish church decided to make a collection for our gallant allies, the soldiers of Belgium.

It is some little time since we have given a collection in Church to any of the Patriotic Funds, and with the consent of the Churchwardens it is proposed to devote the Collections on Sunday, Nov. 14th, to the Belgian Soldiers’ Fund. This Fund has been organized by Baron de Brogueville, Prime Minister and Minister of War for Belgium, and many leading English Bishops and others, to provide winter necessities for the great homeless Army of Belgium. England owes so much to the gallant Belgian Army that we shall be glad to have the opportunity of showing our sympathy with them in a practical way.
