LAND v. WATER. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 10 February 1912

LAND v. WATER. It is common knowledge that Sydney youths do not take to a sea faring life. The Idea that they should do so is encouraged by the love that so many of them have for boating on the harbour. But the freedom and pleasure of open air enjoyment in a sailing boat in Sydney harbour is far removed in comparison from the work of a sail or on board a ship. Between, the two there is nothing in common, and the Sydney youth does not take to the sea for the very substantial reason that he can do better for himself on land. For tho same reason ho is not rushing in to be come a member of tho Common wealth Navy, and it remains to bo seen to what extent the cadets will follow on parallel lines regarding Lord Denman's suggestion of a military career for themselves.

In and Around Sydney. Written Specially for Country Readers. LORD DENMAN'S SUGGESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 10 February 1912

In and Around Sydney. Written Specially for Country Renders. (Uy T.C.B.) LORD DENMAN'S SUGGESTION. | Sydney has had a vir.lt from Lord Deiiman, who came over £rom Mel bourne to presont the King's med als to the Coronation Cadets to whom they woro awarded. The ev ent was not attended by great cere mony, nor by much Bpeech-mftking; effort hnd not been made to invest the notable occasion with military pomp hnd circumstance. Neverthe less it was one which might well, und probably will some day be re garded as of historic importance. Engaged as tlio Commonwealth is just now in building the foundat ions of its own defence it was quite intelligible that Lord Denman should suggest to the cadets when handing them their medals that some of them at least might devote their lives to a military career in the Commonwealth sorvice.
