“They have given their best for their country”

Two Cookham Dean men had died of their wounds.

Roll of Honour

It is almost impossible to keep pace with the additions and constant alterations in our list. Lieut. J. del Riego has been promoted Captain and, alas, George Higgs and Reginald Foster have died of wounds, the former at Salonika and the latter in France. Each bore an excellent record and have given their best for their Country. A Memorial Service for both was held in Church on Sunday evening, October 22nd. May they rest in peace.
