Comforts for Horses

horse-operation-calaisMiss Gore and her girl helpers appeal for further funds to carry on the work of providing comforts and bandages for horses going to the Front. The smallest donations, they state, will be acceptable. One shilling and ninepence will provide a set of bandages for one horse. Over 10,000 bandages have already been used for troop horses, and more are urgently required. Oatmeal, linseed

meal, antiphlogistine, and other necessaries are sent with the bandages. Bush women are asked to help in this work of mercy.
