Rejected on account of ill health

The Longworth parish magazine reported various matters relating to the war in their February issue:

Four of the men who offered themselves as recruits were rejected on account of health. There remain to be added to the previous list Albert Underwood (Marines), Charles Batts, William Bestly, Frederick Weston, and Bartholomew Green.

Miss Bartlett’s very excellent Nursing lectures were greatly appreciated by those who attended them, but we wish that this has included more of the village mothers.

£7 10s was sent to the British Red Cross Society and the Society of St John of Jerusalem for the wounded soldiers. The carol singers collected £3 10s. 9d. The rest was made up by the collections in Church. We will give the amounts subscribed for the Belgium Fund next month.
