Lord Luke Addresses Rushden Parade

Four hundred young people gave a salute to Lord Luke of Pavenham at Rushden on Sunday afternoon.

The occasion was an Empire Youth Sunday parade by the Rushden youth organisation, and the parade, headed by the Salvation Army Band, comprised Army Cadets, Scouts and Guides, Boys' and Girls' Brigades, Nursing Cadets and representatives of the Sunday Schools and  Bible Classes.

The route was from Spencer Park to the Park-road Methodist Church, where a service was   conducted by the Rev. N. P. Goldhawk, and lessons were read by Brian Crane and June Wright.

In an address Lord Luke advised the young people to cherish Sunday observance and conditions and principles established for the well-being of their country and empire.

Members of the Youth Council took up a collection amounting to £4. 14s. 4d. In aid of the Red Cross and St. John Fund.
