Welsh Fusiliers' Gratitude for Gift of Comforts.
An acknowledgment has been received from the headquarters of the 1st Battalion Royal Welch Fusiliers in France, dated 29th June, as follows: -- “Dear Sir,—I beg to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 24th inst., and to thank you, on behalf of the officers and men of my battalion, for the consignment of comforts which the committee of the Soughton Patriotic War Fund have been kind enough to send for them. I understand from the Quartermaster that the consignment has reached him, and I will have the articles distributed as soon as the battalion is relieved from duty in the trenches in the course of a few days. The selection sent will be most acceptable to the men, and the kindness which has prompted its despatch is much appreciated by us all. -Yours respectfully, R. A. Berners, Lieut.- Colonel, commanding 1st Royal Welch Fusiliers.”
