Chaplain Wants Football For Them
I know you take the greatest interest in ‘D’ Company of the Lonsdale Battalion, so I am writing to ask if you can be so kind as to communicate with some of the many friends of the men, and send us out a football or two, for the Company. They will be a great boon to us when the men are out of the trenches for a few days. You will be glad to hear that the men have gone into the trenches for the first time today. They are wonderfully fit and in splendid spirits - Believe me.
