Christmas Puds for the Soldiers

On 5th December 1914, The Rector of Cheltenham Rev Dwelly asked for Christmas puddings from the townspeople for the soldiers. People were asked to “Kindly put your name on the bowl so that we may return them after use.”

The Soldiers’ Welcome held a Plum Pudding Supper on New Year’s Eve and expected 1,200 soldiers to attend!
