Mittens for the Troops

From the Glasgow Herald, 1st December 1914.


1st A. and S. [Argyll and Sutherland] Highlanders. – Mrs. Adair Campbell, Rockbank, Helensburgh, has been asked by Colonel Henderson of the 1st A. and S. Highlanders to collect 400 pairs of mittens for men of the regiment, which has just returned from India and is shortly going to the front.  All contributions from work-parties or from those interested in the regiment will be most gratefully received at the above address.

Christmas Fare. – The Scottish Branch of the Queen Mary Needlework Guild (St. Andrew’s Ambulance Association), 180 West Regent Street, Glasgow, will be very grateful for gifts of plum puddings and fruit cakes to be forwarded to our Expeditionary Force and Home Regiments for Christmas.  It is advisable that the puddings should be cooked and tied in a buttered cloth, and packed in cardboard boxes, and sent in before December 5.  It is felt that such gifts will be appreciated by our soldiers, and the making of an extra pudding will not entail much extra trouble.
