Off to the Front. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 21 December 1915

Off to the Front. — : ? ? — ? w — ~ On Thursday night last Pri vates W. H. Boyd, D. Stein, and L. Sullivan, who had spent their final leave here, returned to Syd ney on theiir way to the front. A large number of townspeople assembled at Coffey's Hotel to see them off. The .Braidwood Band, under the leadership of Mr. Bandmaster Higgins ,was ak so in attendance, and imparted a patriotic flavour to the pro ceedings by rendering a pro gramme of martial music in ex cellent style. *? ' . ' The Mayor presented each sol dier with a sheepskin vest, n pocket book, and a couple of pen cils on behalf of the Recruiting Association. In doing so, he said the gift was not by any means a valuable one, but he felt sure - the men would not look at its intrinsic worth so much as the mark of esteem it conveyed of the goodwill of their fellow' towns- men, and as a mark of apprecia tion of their patriotism in coming forward to help the Empire in its hour of need. He could as suiv them that, the friends th...

THE BAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 21 December 1915

THE BAND. The Araluen Race Club offered the Braidwood Band an engage ment for Boxing Day; Jbutf h#Hng accepted a prior one from Bate man's Bay, it had necessarily to be turned down. This was unfor tunate, as the band has not .dur ing the year been inundated 'with engagements carrying any nlone-1 them. The committee at a recent meeting decided to purchase uni forms for the members. These have long been necessary.* A band without a distinctive uni form resembles the play of Ham let without the ghost. The ! uni forms procured, which, by the way, were supplied by Mr. E. N. Mutton at absolute cost price; are not of an expensive kind, ; the committee having perforce to re strict the expenditure to the length of its 'purse, which is not bulging out with the -almighty dollar. Still, they should serve the purpose as well as the best. At any rate, they will serve the purpose till the Band is in more affluent circumstances. The local stores will close on Saturday, Monday, and Tuesday next for ...

THE NEW 50,000. NO COERCION. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 21 December 1915

THE NEW 50.000. NO COERCION. ?' The Federal, authorities have commenced to issue to local re cruiting ce-mmittcr-s, which will* consist of Mayors or Shire presi dents and their councils, instruc tions with regard to the conduct 'of their part of the recruiting scheme. Stress is laid lupon the fact that the appeal is in no way to sav our of coercion, but it is to be an appeal to patriotism. It is al so laid down that all replies are to be treated as strictly confiden tial. An important clause of the cir cular is that which specially re quests the appointment of a com mittee of five persons .representa tive of all classes of the commu nity, to deal with the replies re ceived to' the personal appeals. It is thought that the confidence of the people will be gained by having the personnel of the com mittees of as representative a character as possible.

THE SUGAR QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 21 December 1915

THE SUGAR QUESTION. The Prime Minister recently ad vised the public to economise in the use of sugar. This statement appears to have created some what of a scare amongst custo mers, and there has consequently been an abnormal demand for sugar since. The result has been that the distributing companies have been compelled to limit the supplies to the same .quantities as delivered during the corre sponding period last year. Mr. F. H. Dowell, of the Central Stores ,has been - advised - that there is ample sugar to fill nor mal requirements, and he assures us that- there is no need for peo ple to order in excess of their requirements for fear of a pos sible shortage in the supply.

WAR NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 21 December 1915

WAR NEWS. ? * ? Sir John French, who has ac cepted the appointment of Field Marshal commanding the troops in the United Kingdom, has been created a Viscount. There has been a large exodus of Grermans and Austrians from Salonica. This is interpreted in some quarters to mean that a (xerman attack is being prepared. The landing of Italian troops in Albania has been successfully accomplished. A report from Salonica says the Bulgarians furiously bombar ded and finally made a bayonet charge on the' positions which the Allies had abandoned, after leaving dummy figures and dum my guns. Three Servian armies, number ing 150,000, are between Scutari, Durazzo, and Elbasson. Another 50,000 are in Southern Albania. The Bulgarians have not crossed the Albanian frontier — they have even retired a distance of some kilometres. It is1 estimated . that the total Bulgarian casualties number 120, 000.

THE v AUSTRALIAN SOLDJEH. The London 'Times,' in a lea der, says : — 'It used to be said that the Australians were not. as ready as others to suffer in tho Empire's cause, because their own great land was won without blood and suffering. The taunt is un just and meaningless. The brav est blood has been gladly shed a I. Anzac. The accusation th'at Aus tralians are reckless is dispro ved, as they have done nothing without purpose.

WHAT ABOUT OUR THOUSAND ? To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 21 December 1915

WHAT ABOUT OUR THOU SAND ? To the Editor. Sir.— Recruiting since the 'Kan- garoo' Route March got within striking distance of the Goulburn camp has been flat, stale, and 'un- profitable as regards recruits: The war cry to 'hop in' has been too great an attraction, and this week w-\ will have the Kangaroos in full force within th.3 hospitable shelter of the camp environments. Tlio figures of the. various depots ihat these matches pass ?show tliat the attraction of route marches have a lien on the affections of our soldier lads. The change of scene and hospitality on the march is irresistible, despite , the dis comforts that it otherwise entails. We are now approaching the fig ures of the headings of the bul letins that have been issued for general information. To-day we stand at 929 accepted and passed as fit. We will, in the ordinary course of events, obtain the tally early in 1916. I had hopes that tlie end of the year would have seen its accomplishment, . but route marches have pr...

Everyone expected desperate rearguard actions, but the masses of men and stores were otrougnt aown witn extraordinary quickness. When a tally was made not a man was left behind.
