From the Manchester Evening News, 4th October 1915.
FEARNOUGHT GLOVES FOR THE NAVY.
Sir,—Last year I made an appeal for glove made of "Fearnought" cloth for the destroyers' crews, or money to buy the same, and I beg to repeat that appeal for the coming winter. Over 5,000 pairs were sent last year, but more than double that quantity will be required for this winter.
A well-known local firm has arranged to stock the material. and I will gladly forward a paper pattern with full particulars of how to make the gloves to anyone who will send me a stamped addressed envelope, and I will gratefully acknowledge any cash subscriptions for the purchase of material which I can arrange have made up.
Rear Admiral Hon. H. Hood writes: "The gloves were most welcome last winter. They were one of the most popular things sent, and will, I feel sure, be welcome again. "
Vice-Admiral Bann also says: "There is no doubt these gloves add greatly to the comfort of the men and are much appreciated by them."
(Mrs.) L. LOCKHART.
