An update of the military tournament planned for August. A lot of work planned for something that eventually wouldn’t take place due to the war.

“The Grand Military Tournament - under the auspices of “The Horsham Troop” Sussex Yeomanry, arranged to take place in Horsham Park (by kind permission of Mrs Hurst) on August Bank Holiday, will be in aid of the Horsham and District Nursing Association (Queen’s Nurses), the West Sussex Nursing Association (Wisborough Green branch) and the Local Troop fund.

“The attractions so far arranged include the expensive engagement of the Full Band and Display Party (60 persons) of the 11th Hussars by permission of the Officer Commanding.”
