LONSDALES GOT THEIR FOOTBALL

The Rev. A.J.W. Crosse, writing on January 3rd, says: -

Dear Sir, - Please accept my grateful thanks for sending a football for D Company, 11th Borders. I hope we shall soon be having some inter-Company matches in the Lonsdale Battalion, when D Company, which is noted for it’s forcefulness and dash, will, no doubt, do as well in the football field as it is doing in the trenches. If you want to see some real ‘muddied oafs’ come here when D Company comes out of the trenches – but they are merry still. Believe me, very heartily yours.
