Of course, 100 years ago Great Britain had an empire, so celebrating Empire Day was a big deal.

“An outdoor church parade or drumhead service is to be held tomorrow (Sunday) in a field on the north side of Hurst Road, in celebration of Empire Day by ‘E’ Company 4th Batallion Royal Sussex Regiment.

“The muster will take place at the Drill Hall in Park Street at 2.30 and the service will commence at 3.15pm.”
