Private Robert Booth of the 6th Durham Light Infantry was charged at Redditch on Wednesday with obtaining by false pretences food to the value of 14s. 8d from Mrs. Mary Anne Johnson, of Alcester Street Redditch. The prisoner who pleaded guilty was sentenced to a month's imprisonment with hard labour and the Bench ordered that at the expiration of his sentence he should be handed over to the military authorities to be dealt with as a deserter. Three Belgian Nuns, two of whom have been at the head of the Belgian Hostel at St. Catherine's since opening last Sept have announced that they will be returning to Belgium. The Sub-Committee gave the Nuns a selection of Worcester Porcelain as a thank you. The Committee will never forget the kind personal attention which the Nuns had shown to the refugees at the Worcester Hostel and best wishes follow them in their return to Belgium.
