Extract from ‘Notes For A Parish History’ (ERO T/P 188/3) written by Revd. E. H. L Reeve of Stondon Massey (Essex).
4th August 1918
This day, the fourth Anniversary of the entrance of Great Britain into the War has been marked by special Services of Prayer and Thanksgiving.
At Stondon we had a good congregation at Church in the Morning, and in the evening about 100 persons attended an Open-Air Service in a field opposite Soames’ Farm House.
