A meeting of the committee appointed to consider the best arrangements to be made for utilising women’s services in the place of men who have joined the army was held last Friday. It has not been found possible to make all necessary arrangements for opening a register before Christmas.
Following the enthusiastic meeting held at the Royal Hotel on Wednesday last week there was a very busy time at the Henley Recruiting Office and the surgery in Hart Street where men came forward to be enlisted under Lord Derby’s recruiting scheme and to be placed in their groups in Army Reserve Class B.
