We have a very good friend to the Company and to the School,
who has given to the Company a very finely embroidered
standard, and I would like to express my thanks and those of
all members of this Company for such a beautiful gift.
Mrs. Halfhide must have put in hours of loving work in making
this standard and I know that it will not only be an inspiration
to all present and future members of the Company but will be a
reminder that Mrs. Halfhide has always a kindly thought for us.

Coronation Day

Band of Goldings no. 2 Company, Cadet Force

The band had a busy time on Coronation Day, 2nd June.
In the morning they played the Company to Hertford, and then led the procession
to the Civic service in the Castle grounds. At 6 o clock in the evening the Band gave
2 displays of counter-marching and beating the retreat, to the patients at Ware
Sanatorium. They were well received a gave a wonderful show in spite of poor
weather.
At 9 p.m. the Band attempted to give a display of marching and beating the retreat,
But Only a short performance could be given owing to the rain.
