National Day of Intercession

Knitted Soldier's Cap pattern [OR2343/8]

Friday 21st August 1914 (Sharnbrook): Today has been declared a National Day of Intercession to pray for the nation's soldiers and for a speedy end to the war. In Sharnbrook extra services are being held in the Church in the morning and evening. The village is intending to provide practical as well as spiritual aid for British soldiers. On Wednesday a meeting was held at the Church concerning Queen Mary’s Needlework Guild. As a result a working party has been set up which will meet in the Church Room to knit and sew items for soldiers and sailors, the sick and wounded and their families.
