THE EQUIPMENT OF THE VULUNTEERS. The following appeal has been issued by Colonel Pryce-Jones, M.P. The Battalion has been ordered to supply ona section to go to the front and to take part with his line regiment in South Africa, and another is ordered to hold itself in reserve. It will, therefore, be necessary to raise funds to supplement the Government allowance in order to turn out the section in every respect fully and adequately equipped. In addition to this it is pro- posed to insure for X100 the life of every married man going out, and of every single man whose relatives are dependent upon him at home, during the continuance of the war, conditionally that the same be secured in trust or to purchase an annuity for those entitled to it in case of death. Any surplus will be applied in reduction of the Corps' liabilities, and for furthering its efficiency in the future. As Commanding officer, I have therefore the honour to appeal to the generous and patriotic in- habitants of the counties of Montgomery and Mer- ioneth to subscribe to the fund which has been opened at the North and South Wales Bank, New- town, for this purpose. May I ask everybody who can to subscribe some- thing, however small, and those who can well afford to subscribe handsomely to make that personal sacrifice, to mark this memorable crisis in the his- tory of our country, when for the first time, I believe the Volunteers have been invited to go out on active service to fight the battles of the Empire? E PRYCE-JONES, January 9th, 1900. O.C. 5th V.B.S.W.B. Headquarters: Newtown, Montgomeryshire.
