In the next column we print the current acknowledgments of gifts in kind. We should like to appeal to our helpers for continued supplies of woollen scarves. The men of the M.T. columns have much of their work to. do at night. There are few nights when a warm woollen scarf is not a comfort to the driver of a motor lorry on active service. We can continue to make use of practically any number which are given to us. There is also a fairly constant demand for hand knitted socks.
Gift of Gramophone Acknowledged.
"As one of the above company, I feel that I must thank you for your gift of a gramophone. At present we are stationed in a small village quite close to the firing line, and your gift affords one of the only amusements not only to our company, but to hundreds of troops who are enjoying a well-earned rest after a long spell in the trenches. I thought you would be glad to know of. its widespread appreciation."—Staff Sergt„ 11111 Div. Sun. Col.
