Arthur Gill in North Coates Fitties, Lincolnshire - 1916
from I remember! Reminiscences of a Cobbler's Son, pages 85-87:
[Arthur Gill was called up in June 1916. His Home Service duties included shore patrolling and manning a canteen for the Lincolnshire Regiment]
This dry canteen was in (what had been) the “Coach House” in the grounds of the Rectory of North Cotes Church of England. The Rector (Mr. Johnson), a grand chap, had offered it to the Colonel for the use of the troops.
I went once or twice to Evensong at his Church—it was a lovely old Church, lit up with many beautiful Oil Lamps, and looked very cosy.
