    LUTON NEWS & BEDFORDSHIRE ADVERTISER: BEDFORDSHIRE. Sapper Wm. Pates, RE, an old Biggleswade football and cricket player, writing from the Holy Land, expresses deep disappointment with the East, and confesses that Blighty is the best place in the world. "A shopkeeper here," he says, "asked a chum of mine if he had been to Jericho, Jerusalem, etc., and my pal said, 'We've been all over your country, and I wouldn't give you one English village for the whole of Palestine.' Bethlehem is decent, but the biggest disappointment I had was Jerusalem. After a night's trek it nearly gave me a fright with the smells etc. We had a trip round the city, and I wouldn't go again if all my expenses were paid."
