Parish Notes

Two men given Bravery awards
"A largely-attended public meeting was held at the Co-operative Hall, Dudley, to do honour to two local soldiers, Corporal T. Johnson, Tank Corps, and Private J,.T. Robson, N.F., both of Dudley, who have won distinction on the battlefield. . . .

Cllr. E. Simmons (Chairman to Weetslade Council) handed to Corpl. Johnson the Card of Honour and to Pte. Robson the Military Medal for bravery on the field.

On behalf of the Welcome Home Fund Committee he presented each with a silver watch and a gold ring. He alluded to their deeds of bravery and the honour they had brought to themselves and the village to which they belonged."
