Private Edwin Little 12th October 1917

In this month we will be remembering Private Edwin Little, service number 202147 of the 6th Battalion Royal Berkshire Regiment, who was killed in action on the 12th October 1917, at the age of 21.  At the time of his death his battalion was attached to the 53rd Brigade, 18th (Eastern) Division, who were involved in the Battle of Passchendaele.  He has no headstone but is named on the Tyne Cot Memorial, Belgium and is on the War Memorial in Ruan Church.  He received the Victory and British Medals.
Edwin was the only son of Richard Edwin & Eliza Ann Little of Tresemple, St Clement, Truro.  The Little family for over 20 years lived at Ruan High Lanes.  In 1911 Edwin was a boarder at Truro Wesleyan College.poppy

Harvest Festival

The church was beautifully decorated for the Harvest Festival with flowers, fruit and vegetables.
The service taken by the Reverend Ken Boullier was started off with the well known hymn “We plough the fields and scatter.”  The sermon referred to the plight of refugees and asked the congregation what they would most miss if they had to leave their homes in a hurry.  This was very thought provoking.
After the service many people stayed for refreshments and a chat.  A lovely evening was had by all.
