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'.
