We Will Remember Them

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

BRENTWOOD CLUB.  The annual meeting of the Brentwood Cricket Club was held at the Town Hall on Friday.  Mr. J. J. Read. Captain, presiding.  The report stated that the cricket fixtures arranged had been cancelled, as approximately 30 playing members had gone on active service, among them being Lieuts. Jervis Johnson, D.C.C. Sewell and H.H. Travers, whose death the Committee deeply deplored.  The Committee felt it would be unfortunate if the club ceased to exist; they therefore proposed to open the ground for lawn tennis, and it was hoped that those Honorary Members and others who in the past had so loyally and liberally supported the Club would continue their support at this critical stage.  The subscription for ladies would now be £1 1s.   The Chairman proposed that the report be adopted.  The club cricket last year, so far as it went, was a great success.  They owed, however, £60.  The majority of the members were on active service, and there could be no cricket, or very little, this year, and it looked as if the Club would have to be supported by tennis and by the ladies.  There could be a great many tennis courts on the ground, and he hoped the ladies would get as many members as they could.  He had written to Mr. Horne-Payne the President, and he had replied that he would reduce the rent of the ground by £15, and renew his subscription (Hear, Hear).  The report was adopted.    Mr. C. Edgar Lewis, Honorary Secretary, said the Club had been going for 35 years, and he hoped members would do their best to see that it was maintained.  Mr. J. Gamble said he believed many members would be willing to increase their subscriptions if necessary.  He would for one.   Mr. L. is said he also would be pleased to increase his subscription.  The officers and committee were re-elected and it was agreed to write thanking Mr. Horne-Payne for his assistance to the Club.
