Star Let­ter

The People's Friend - - Soap By Glenda Young -

On a glo­ri­ous sunny Satur­day, the Oak­ley Vil­lage Show opened to cel­e­brate, among other things, the cen­te­nary of the end­ing of World War I, re­mem­ber­ing the sac­ri­fice of all our mil­i­tary per­son­nel, the sol­diers and air­men as well as med­i­cal staff.

Some of us dressed up to take part in a pa­rade. I’m pic­tured in a Red Cross uni­form, stand­ing along­side my mother.

We also en­tered the mini scare­crow com­pe­ti­tion, and as the theme this year was based on the cen­te­nary, my hus­band chose to make an ac­cu­rate model of a tank of that era. I made the scare­crow, com­plete with tin hat, and he sat in­side the tank. We were pleased to re­ceive first prize. Mrs A.F., Oak­ley.
