Enjoying Army life and thankful for good health, good companions and good food

A Warfield soldier was enjoying his training.


On behalf of our Branch of the Voluntary Work Organisation which provides clothing for wounded Soldiers, a concert was held in the Sunday School on March 4th. There were two performances, in the afternoon at 3.15 and in the evening at 7, and the room was full on both occasions…

The proceeds amounted to nearly £30. The kind performers would not wish to be thanked for doing war work, but the members of the work party wish to express their gratitude, and to say how much everybody enjoyed themselves.


A letter has been received from Mr. Dowell from Worgret Camp, Wareham, in which he says he is enjoying Army life and has to be thankful for good health, good companions and good food. He says also he is learning road making, trench digging, coal carting and potato peeling.
