About this object
Country Women's Institute banner with the Guild Ode:

Hail, oh comrades gathered here,
in good fellowship draw near;
voices mingling, bring good cheer.
Sing, oh comrades, sing!


Rally round with right good will,
work and demonstrate our skill;
help our guild, our aims fulfil,
unity is strength.

Pledge of sisterhood recall,
each to seek the good of all,
blessings rich shall then befall,
Sing, oh comrades, sing.


Courage, hope and faith retain,
love will ease life's stress and strain.
Cheerful, steadfast, calm, remain
Sing, oh comrades, sing.
