It was not unusual for employers to present a bible to employees in Victorian times and I think Cadbury's (Bournville) continued the tradition until very recently.
John 5 v 39,
Search the scriptures;for in them ye think ye have eternal life;and they are they which testify of me.
We need Rev. Long to translate me thinks.
Surprised he didn't quote Matthew 5:12 - "Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven" (but don't expect decent wages before then).
could he have been called up for the army? just a thought
I also have a bible presented to my father. H Bibby. June1938.
