6th – Lent Course Week 3

8th – Woodbine Willie
Here’s a ‘saint’ that the Church of England remembers from the 1st World War – the Revd. Geoffrey Studdert Kennedy MC (1883 – 1929). Known by the troops as ‘Woodbine Willie’, this popular, much-loved army chaplain on the Western Front gave out copious amounts of ‘Woodbines’, the most popular cheap cigarette of the time. He would probably be reprimanded today
