NOW THEN, YOU LADS AT WORKINGTON

Don’t Linger Longer

Private A.H. Harvey, 11th Border, in a letter dated February 5th to his parents, says he is in the pink, also that they have returned to the trenches for seven days after a week’s rest, and hopes they will have better luck this time. He continues:-

The Derby Scheme is not going so well, I think. It seems the young men of England are not coming forward as they ought to do. If they have to be brought – well all I can say is they are pack of cowards and can’t realise that we are still up against it. The longer they linger, the longer the war will last. Now, then, you lad at Workington; don’t spoil the record of the old town! All the D Company of the Lonsdales would like you to come forward before March 1st, without a Conscription mark on you. You can put this in the "Star" if you like, just to liven things up a bit. Best of luck to all.
