Cecil George Harwood in Peterborough - 1915

from Down Memory Lane, pages 33-34:

[Cecil Harwood served in the British Armed Forces September 1914 - March 1917. His training included being stationed in Peterborough before deployment to France in 1915]


[…] The Regimental Sunday service was in the [Peterborough] Cathedral every Sunday. The Cathedral was filled as we had the Regimental band to play for all with the organ. 



Our Sunday parades on the Heath with a full band was a sure sign that all who could gathered around and joined in the service with us. This happened every fine Sunday until we moved out.
