COMFORTS FOR THE TROOPS
Although the scheme has only been running a little more than a fortnight, and only 1s subscriptions were invited from our readers, you may be interested to learn that we have already received close on £400 from “Home Chat” readers alone.
Ten thousand tins were despatched last week; another ten thousand will be despatched this week; and a further twenty thousand are on order.
I have no doubt that in a very short time we shall have increased this quantity four or five times.
["Home Chat" was a weekly magazine for women, launched in 1895. The amount asked for was one shilling (1s) - see my earlier post on the currency of the time.]
