C.L.B. TEA AND CONCERT. I Presentation of Medals and Cups. I The annual tea, concert and presentation ef the Church Lads' Brigade, Ledbury Company, was held in the Church Room, Ledbury, last (Thursday) night. After a good tea had been partaken of the concert and presentation was held, which the Rev F W Carnegy (Rector) presided over, there being an average gathering of parents and friends. Mr F W Wade gave the lads an address on discipline. He said they might have a lot of unpleasantness to put up with, orders that were not quite clear to them, but if they obeyed them no matter what they were they would be doing right. It was not always easy to remain staunch and true, but he thanked from the bettom of his heart those lads who had remained true to their corps. He advised them to stiok to the old corps that had done so much for them. He hoped from the bottom of his heart that the lads would continue with their regularity of attendance. He was confident that the corps was gradually on the iacrease. It would not be long before they got their numbers back again, but it was not quantity they wanted but quality. (Hear, hear.) He had lost some of the old lads that used to come to his classes on a Sunday, and they used to be so regular. Perhaps they looked at it from a different point qf view to his own. In conclusion he would ask them to remember that there was only one goal in view-to make good men of them. He did not believe there was anything finer than a God-fearing, clean minded Englishman. Of course, it was hard, but any- thing hard in life is worth having. He asked the parents in the Hall to try add encourage the lads to be true to the C. L. B. (Applause.) Rbv F W Carnegy said it was his pleasant duty to take the chair that night and amongst the things he had down on the programme was to thank Mr Wade very heartily for the good work he had done in the past. He was the busiest man in Ledbury, yet he found time to teach the lads o. Sundaf morning. The Rector asked the lads to show their appreciation of Mr Wade by giving him ahearty clap. A hearty round of applause was given Mr Wade, who thanked the lads very much. During a break in the programme the Rector said he hoped they would think over what Mr Wade told them. It came from a great Chris- tian heart. He told the lads to stick to him. He spoke highly of Captain Reed and Major Paul for the work they had done to organise that tea, in which they were ably backed up by Mrs and the Misses Paul, Mrs and Miss Chadd. They were always good helpers. It was heart- breaking to think of the way the C.L.B. was in six months ago, but there were better days in store for them. He thanked all those who had remained true to the company. It was a little C.L.B. in Ledbury at the present time but he asked them to try and make up for it and try to get lads to join. He again thanked Major Paul, and Captain Reed for the time they had given to the C.L.B. movement. (Applause.) Staff- Sergt Moss deserved a good word )also for the way he had stuck to the Training Corps, which in time would go into the C.L.B. He would like to tell them that they were perfectly safe financially, so that anybody could join without any risk. (Laughter.) They owed a good deal to their old assistant-chaplain, the Rev F W Parkinson, who he hoped had a larger sphere at Rodmarton. He hoped the Rev 0 F R Strickland would be assistant-chaplain in Mr Parkinson's place. Mr Dawe, the correspondent, had left them to go to Weymouth, where he was acting in a similar capacity. He had received a letter from Mr Dawe in which he said he had thrown himself into the C.L.B. work, and asking him to remember him to the lads. (Applause.) Major Paul came to the rescue, and he was even now acting as corre- spondent. When he (the Rector) was up in London he saw .his brother. Colonel Oarnegy- the boya would remember him because he had given them such a thorough inspection. Down at Bournemouth there were 700 lads assembled to salute the Union Jack on St. George's Day, and he was wondering why they could not do it at Ledbury. Patriotism seemed to get worse and worse. He would ask if the Brigade could not parade on Empire Day-the 26th of May and salute the Union Jack. He thought it right and proper that the Church lads should salute the flag. He asked them to try and get new lads to join try and make the old company-9 years oldâinto a strong one. (Loud applause.) Mrs F W Carnegy graciously presented the medals and cup, :of which Sergt. Morgan and Corpl. Barnett were the recipients. A good programme of harmony was given, Mr E W Reed presiding at the piano :â Pianoforte solo, Mrs Strickland (India). Song, Mr Strickland.
