FOOTSCRAY'S PART. PROPOSED PATRIOTIC WAR FUND. GENEROUS GIVING DESIRED. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 15 August 1914
-FOOTSCRA YS PART. PROPOSED PATRIOTIC WAR FUND. GENEROUS GIVING DESIRED. Though very little reliable war news .is coming through it must not be taken 'for granted that all is well with Great Britain. The German nation did not enter upon its momentous struggle without counting the possibilities and though, on the face of it, it would seem that its defeat is the only outcome that defeat will be a heavy and costly task. For that reason every well-wisher of the British Empire should be prepared to play a part in assisting toward the goal of victory. It is not possible for every British subject to go to the front to fight for King and Country, but there are other methods of promoting the Empire's cause. Those who cannot offer their lives can do something for those who do. Apart from what Gov .ernments may do there is need for money to ensure that Australia's ex peditionary force shall go forth not only well equipped, but with minds contented by the knowledge that if they do fall, or even...
