Queen Mary’s noble example has helped us be brave

Hurst WI rejoiced at the end of the war.

To Her Most Gracious Majesty Quueen Mary from the Women’s Institute of Hurst, Berks, membership 95.

We the members of the Hurst Women’s Institute being deeply sensible of your Majesty’s sympathy with our services & trials in the last few years beg that you will accept our humble congratulations in the termination of the war. We know that whatever have been our sufferings & deprivations that they have been equally shared by our Queen, & this knowledge has enabled many of us to be brave. Now that a calm joy fills our hearts we are anxious to share this also with your Majesty whose noble example has uplifted us all & whose personal sympathy has done so much to rivet the people’s affections ever more firmly to your Majesties.
