BRITAIN'S STRONGEST FORTRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 1 August 1940

BRTTAIN'S STRONGEST FORTRESS.

(BY MONA GARDNER.)

Condensed, from c * Menacing . Sun." Singapore began by being a swampy island witfi a small fish- ing- village on it. Today a sum oi something like £20,000,000 has turned its 220 square miles into one of the most formidable mili- tary and naval bases in the world. Any land force attacking Singapore island (which is joined to the tip of Malaya by a cause-' way over the narrow Straits of Johore) would have first to effect an infantry landing in Siam or Maiaya, and complete the opera- tion by a long and arduous over- land trek. Aside from Siam's disinclination to be used as an > enemy base, there is the insur- mountable barrier of hundreds of miles of mountainous -jungle witn- out a single road, stretching across the northern province of Malaya. A landing in southern Malaya is not at all impossible, but it would be a slow, unwieldy manoeuvre, for the roads by which the in- fantry could march are narrow chasms in the jungle...

FOOTBALL. THIRDS LOSE TO TAITA. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 1 August 1940

FOOTBALL.

THIRDS LOSE TO TAITA.

Meeting on a ground which would have made ah ideal duek- pen, the Thirds had their colmirs lowered by the championship leaders, Taita, by 9 points to 3. • Although the local lads gener- ally had the better of the play in the first spell, their opponents, as- sisted by a strong wind, made the most of their few opportunities to, take the lead with a penalty goal, secured shortly, after the start, and a try. After half-time, Upper Hutt re- doubled their efforts and were fin- ally. rewarded when Lloyd went over ffor a nice try wide out, after ■ the ball had passed right through .the back line. Not to be outdone, however, Taita turned defence into attack and, obtaining posses- sion from axserum in Upper Hutt territory, one of their backs kick- ed through. 0 'Reilly took the ball cleanly, but his clearing kick was charged down, and in the re- sultant scramble, McNab ground- edthe ball to increase Taita's lead/ After this, play see-sawed up and d...

WOUNDED AND SICK SOLDIERS. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 1 August 1940

WOUNDED AND SICK SOLDIERS.

The Government proposes to erect a-two-storey building, with 100 beds, adjoining the main cor- ridor of the present Wellington Hospital to provide accommoda- tion for. returning sick and wounded soldiers. The situation which will arise when the in- tended accommodation is no longer needed for soldier patients was discussed at last Thursdays meeting of the Wellington Jtios- pital Board. The chairman (Mr. F. Castle) said that it seemed reasonable if the department guaranteed to pro- vide immediate requirements that later, when the accommodation was., not required for army patients, an adjustment of the fin- ance and other conditions should be made. Mr. A. W. Croskery said that the board should definitely have the option of stating whether or. not it wanted the building when it was no longer needed for sol- dier patients. Mr. A. H. Carman said that the Director-General of Health, Dr. M. H. Watt, had given an assurance that the board would have the op- t...

VOLUNTEER RECRUITS. FREE HOSPITAL TREATMENT IN WELLINGTON. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 1 August 1940

VOLUNTEER RECRUITS.

FREE HOSPITAL TREATMENT IN WELLINGTON.

On the motion of Mr. J. Purvis, the Wellington Hospital Board de- cided that men who had volun- teered for military service over- seas, and^who had required out- patient treatment to bring them to the required standard, be treated free. -- Mr. Purvis said there had been many volunteers who were told that they would be accepted if cer- tain corrections were made -in their physical standard: Men en- tering hospital were automatically covered by social security, but that did not apply 'to out-patients, .and many of those he had in mind were in the latter category. If a man volunteered he should be given every consideration, and that particularly applied when he was so keen to serve as to go to the trouble of having himself put in order to secure acceptance of his enlistment. The voluntary .system had ended, but there were still many volunteers to be dealt with. Further, there were many

who had taken the steps ...
