CHURCH PARADE - Forty ex-service men, including Lieut-Commander Humphrey Brand and Admiral Curry, under the leadership of ex-Sergeant William Goldsmith, paraded at the Beddingham Reading Room on Sunday morning and marched through the village to the Glynde Parish Church, with the Glynde and Beddingham Prize Band at their head, under the conductorship of Mr B Jenner (bandmaster). The church was crowded and the service was conducted by the Rev E Griffiths. At the war memorial a laurel wreath was deposited by Admiral Curry. The hymn 'For all the Saints' was sung. Mr Maurice Turner, a member of the band, sounded the 'Last Post' and 'Reveille'.


ARMISTICE PARADE - A large contingent of ex-service men from the villages of Firle, Beddingham and Glynde met at the Ram Inn on Sunday afternoon and proceeded to the Parish Church under the command of Battery Sergeant-Major Payton and led by the Glynde and Beddingham Prize Band, conducted by Mr B Jenner. The service at the church was conducted by the Vicar (the Rev A E Gregor) who gave an excellent address to the large congregation. Mr R Eastwood presided at the organ, and the hymns sung were 'O God our help in ages past', 'All People that on earth do dwell' and 'Onward Christian Soldiers'. At the memorial, prayers were read and the hymn 'For all the Saints' sung, accompanied by the band. A laurel wreath, given by the ex-service men, was placed on the memorial, and the 'Last post' and the Reveille' were sounded by Sergeant S Pilbeam of the 5th Royal Sussex Regiment. The collection at the church was for the Royal Sussex County and the Lewes Victoria Hospitals.
