Staff at Brooke Weston are hoping to reunite a historic book with its owner after it was found in the College. The tiny new Testament, dating back to 1917, was presented to Leonard Rawson to mark his admission into the Army. Inscribed with the date and message 'Fight the Good Fight', it was signed by the General Secretary of the Fuller Sunday School in Kettering. Now, 90 years on, it was languishing in the College's lost property department after being found by a cleaner. Local paper, the Evening Telegraph, have taken up the story to help find the relatives of Mr Rawson and discover how the book came to be in College in the first place.

Buildings Manager, Barry Gibb said; 'The oddest things are found; like students' teeth braces and lots of spectacles but this is the first thing of personal importance to turn up. Who was this person, what became of them and how did this book, which is still in remarkable condition, get here in the first place? '
