The recent outburst of patriotism in connection with the departure of members of the Towyn Company of Volunteers for mobilisation for the front has made Volunteering more popular than ever in this district. Not less than fifteen new members have joined the Com- pany, and amongst them we find the names of some very prominent townsmen, whose example, it is hoped, will be followed by others. Numerically the members are now more than they have ever been. Enthusiasm is so general in the Company that a wish is expressed in favour of being called to do garrison duty. If this were necessary practi- cally the whole Company would be willing to sacrifice the time and money.
