100 YEARS AGO: Sussex Express 4 October 1918. Coal For Villagers. The Coal Controller has decided that the Squire, vicar, doctor, or any other responsible person may accumulate a reserve stock of coal for emergency distribution to villagers should the ordinary coal supply fail at any time during the winter. For this purpose four or five tons of coal may be purchased and stored, but it must be understood that the coal cannot be used to supplement the ordinary scale allowances to villagers, and can only be used if stocks in the hands of the local coal merchants fail.
