Tring at War - 28th November, 1914

Old News
All Tring Public Houses are to be close at 8.30 pm. The 21st Division H.Q. is in the town and the Northumberland Fusiliers have had their leave cancelled! A mortuary, has been erected at the Boys' School to equip it as a military hospital. Troops have been moved out of the Halton camp because of the mud. News of some men from Wigginton who have been fighting at the front.
And if you want to forget the war why not hire a really up-to-date car
I have also added 1911 census data on all the people mentioned in the news.
