World War I daily bulletin from the Horsham district
World War I daily bulletin from the Horsham district

In this, the latest in our daily news reports taken from the West Sussex County Times of 1914, we have a report about the town’s Literary and Debating Society.

“On Thursday evening at the Town Hall Council Chamber the members of the Literary and Debating Society and their friends were fortunate in listening to what the Rev F A Young had to say on the subject of “Going About”.

“Mr J G Pungey, who protested that the canopied chair was too big for him, said that Mr Young was too well known to them all to need introduction. All that he (Mr Bungey) knew of the subject was that it had to do with holidays and would, he was sure, be most interesting.”

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.
