‘Flashes From the Fight’ in Church Army gazette

“Move On - We had our second Coffee Supper at Bear's Green. The Mission Room was full to overflowing. There were solos, recitations, and a Lantern Story: 'Charlie Coulston, Drummer Boy'. The Captain gave also a recitation, illustrated by lantern, called: 'The Lifeboat', and concluded it (with the aid of a few Winged Arrows on the same subject) by a ten minute gospel address. By the way the people went away we feel sure that they felt impressed by those words. We are all praying for a 'Forward Movement' in the work amongst the souls in this country district.”
