A.I.F. ARRIVES IN BRITAIN TUMULTUOUS WELCOME GIVEN Official Correspondent's Despatch &nbsp; (By Kenneth Slessor, Commonwealth Official War Correspondent in London). The arrival of the Australians in Great Britain could not have been timed more exactly for a greater psychological effect. Their appearnce was electric.

The scores at this stage were: Epping 7-4; Heidelberg 3-6. Heidelberg forced the pace when play resumed, but their bursts were falling down in front of goal where their forwards were no match, at this st...
