State Parliamentary Recruiting Campaign. MEN ARE URGENTLY NEEDED. [Newspaper Article] — Cressy and Lismore Pioneer and Western Plains Representative — 7 July 1915

State Parliamentary Recruiting Campaign. MEN ARE URGENTLY NEEDED. [St R. J. M.J Last night in a cafe a foreigner —aneutral—said to me: "You will not get many more Austra lians to go to the war unless you have conscription." Because he was a foreigner and might have misinterpreted as boasting the indignant denial that rose to my lips I let the remark pass. But among ourselves we can not afford to ignore what our foreign fellow citizens think of our valor and patriotism. We will not send a sufficiency of reinforcements to the fighting line in Gallipoli unless by national compulsion! Are we behaving sothat the impartial observer can think that of us ? It is not possible! Out there on the bloody crags of Gallipoli our brothers are grappling daily with death that our country may be free. Fot six solid weeks, in the face of fearful odds, day and night they have held on to their posts in a hell of gunfire and carnage, faith fully believing that as they fall we will step into their places ;...
