If you've noticed an error in this article please click here to report it so we can fix it.
SATISFACTORY as has been the N../rapid response to the special appeal made by Mr. W. E. Rootes, president of the S.M.M. and T., on behalf of the Comforts Funds for the R.A.S.C. and R.A.O.C., gifts in cash and kind are still urgently needed. Up to Saturday last, the total cash donations reached £2,155, but pressing demands are being made upon the funds, and the size and importance of the industry and the vast numbers of people in the motor. ing community justify the hope that this sum will be greatly exceeded.
It should he remembered that the demands will be continuous, and probably increased if the war develops more actively, whilst the number of men concerned is steadily rising.
As we have pointed out before, gifts in cash should be sent to Lieut.-Col. D. C. McLagan, D.S.O., Hobart House, Wilton Street, London, S.W.1, and parcels to him, care of Comforts Funds, Kensington Palace Barracks, London, W.8.
