A small opportunity of making a sacrifice necessitated by the time of war!

Bracknell Church fitted pricy curtains to comply with the new blackout rules. You may remember local teacher Mr Penwill joining up last September, and it seems he had been posted to India.

Owing to the necessity for darkening the windows of the Church, curtains have been placed over the windows. As this will involve considerable expense, the Churchwarden, Mr. Western, will gladly receive any contributions which any parishioner may wish to make. Here is a small opportunity of making a sacrifice necessitated by the time of war!

THE SCHOOL.

A letter has recently been received from Mr. Penwill, our Assistant Master, who is now serving with the Devon Territorials in India. Mr. Penwill has been made into a Lance-Corporal, and writes cheerfully and full of interest about what he has seen in India.
