GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 13 January 1894

GENERAL NEWS. A Sydney morning paper a few days ago raptur ously told its readers that the change which has lately been effected in the character and colour of the puggarees worn by the members of the Per manent Artillery, has given officers and men a distingue appearance, which has evoked the admira tion of all who have noticed the change. That means, if it means anything, that the officers and men look like the common or feather-bed variety of soldiers to those who have not noticed the alteration in their head-dress, which alteration after all cannot be a very remarkable affair or it would needs be observed by all. The new puggaree may be a very fine thing or it may not, hut what the officers apparently require most of all is a little ability shared among them, with new facings, stripes, and borders. It is only the other day a vacant commission in the Permanent Artillery attracted six candidates, of whom fnnr fn.;inrl most egregiously, and another who was afraid to see the affair ...
