Fingerless gloves for men on mine sweepers

Children in Sonning helped sailors battling freezing temperatures by making them gloves in their handicraft classes.

17th November 1916

Today for Manual Occupation, the Upper group began to make fingerless gloves for the use of the men on the mine sweepers. Miss Markwood came and gave the boys their first lesson.
