World War I daily bulletin from the Horsham district

“At the Bear Inn, Market Square [Horsham] on Monday evening, Mr Alfred Agate, the President of the Horsham Thursday Football Club, on behalf of the members, presented Mr Jack Bryant with a revolving shaving mirror as a mark of their esteem on his departure for East Africa.

“At the same time Mr Agate expressed heart-felt good wishes for Mr Bryant’s success in his new sphere.”

This is the latest in our daily news reports from the County Times of 1914 as we build up to commemorate the start of the first world war.

As part of our First World War centenary coverage we want to hear from you. If you live in the Horsham district and had a relative who fought in the war, tell us about them. It doesn’t matter if the relative lived outside the area.
