A midday reminder of the brave men fighting for King and Country

The church bell of St Nicolas’ Church in Newbury was rung daily during the war. The parish magazine explained to parishioners why this was:

The daily ringing of the Bell at mid-day is intended for a reminder to us of the brave men who are fighting for King and Country by sea and land, and as a call to us to offer up a short prayer for them at that hour, wherever we may be: and our Bishop has expressed the hope that this time may be one in which every parish may learn afresh the lesson of Prayer. 7 more words
