Work at home in connection with the war has been carried on with the greatest enthusiasm and despatch. In connection with the Red Cross work and the provision of clothes and comforts for the men at the front and their dependents, hundreds of well-known women are working almost day and night. Sir Frederick Treves recently announced that Red Cross ” units ” would leave for the front practically every day for some time to come. A unit consists of ten surgeons, ten dressers, and twenty fully qualified hospital nurses. Comfortable motor-ambulances and hospital trains, elaborately equipped, are features of the present war, as is also the nov -L, ~: r~—-t


Sanitary Detachment for the front, composed entirely of specially trained men. The Territorials are settling down to the gruelling process of ” getting fit,” with admirable good humour, and are accustoming themselves to all sorts of strange sleeping-places as the ” fortune of war.” Meanwhile, many thousands of active men of all classes who for one reason or another are unable to offer their services to the Army have volunteered for service in the new special constabulary for duty in London for four hours a day. Boy Scouts are being utilised by the Government in large numbers, and have proved very efficient as despatch-carriers, guards over railway lines and bridges, and as patrols.
