WHAT WE HAVE DONE.
The military authorities have undertaken to forward these gift packages in bulk free. No time will be lost in sending them. They will be shipped in cases under the care of the War Office.
In this way we have overcome the problem of the expense of sending single parcels to individual soldiers. Our readers are relieved, not only of the cost of postage, but of the high duty which has to be paid in the ordinary way on tobacco in England.
THE BEST APPRECIATION.Remember that your name and address will be attached to every packet of tobacco you pay for, and the soldiers who receive them will know you are their benefactors.
Our soldiers will appreciate this practical way of showing our admiration of their bravery in beating back the hosts of Germans who have attacked them in such overwhelming numbers.
Let every one of our defenders be cheered by the receipt of tobacco and cigarettes—welcome proof that someone here at home is thinking of him.
Do not send us tobacco or cigarettes, only money.Our brave soldiers at the Front are short of something to smoke. Help us to supply it.
We have organised a scheme whereby every citizen may gladden the heart of a hero in khaki by filling his pipe and giving him the cigarette which he so dearly loves.
With sixpence you can buy the blessing of a lad who is risking his life every minute in order that we at home may be saved from the terrors of Kaiserism.
The French people have been very generous to Tommy Atkins in regard to "Smokes," but Tommy dislikes their cigarettes. He says they have no "bite" in them. He longs for the British "fag." We are going to see that he gets it. There are no tobacco shops on the battlefield, and our gallant boys are waiting.
For every sixpence that you subscribe we will send out:
2oz. packet of tobacco with your name and address attached, and a Packet of Thirty cigarettes.
Put your name down for as many sixpences as you can. Every sixpence will gladden the heart of a hero. He will remember YOU.
