TERRITORIAL NOTES. Recruiting has been quite brisk lately, and if there are any young men who want to join they should hurry up, so as to be able to go to camp this year. It is very gratifying to know that forty promising recruits have come for- ward, and are making rapid progress under the careful training of Col.-Sergt.-Instructor Gre- gory, who is assisted with commendable self- sacrifice by the Territorial Sergeants of the Detachment. It is important that all the men at present serving who re-engaged last April for twelve months should re-engage at once if they desire to do so. If they wait until the ex- piration of the twelve months before signing on again, should they want to continue, they will have to re-engage on the four years' basisi If they do so at once they can engage for one, two, three, or four years at their own option. A very good start was made at the Drill Hall, Merthyr, in company training on Wednesday night. The men took an interest in their work, and moved with precision and energy. The parade was a very encouraging one-all the men turned out smart and clean On Sunday morning last, the Merthyr De- tachment marched to Dowlais Church for divine service. There was a fairly good muster, the men turning up well dressed, and in a soldierly manner. The Detachment was headed by its splendid band, under Bandmaster Hanney. Major F. T. James was in command, and the following officers were present:—Capt. D. C. Harris, Lieut. H. H.' Sout.hey, and Second Lieut. T. Evans. The Rev. Llewelvn Williams, R.D., Rector of Dowlais, officiated. There was a large congregation, and crowds lined the whole route on the return march to Merthyr. Next Wednesday there will be a heavy marching order parade, when it is hoped there will be a good muster. If any man has any difficulty about rolling his coat or fixing up his kit he should ask one of his Sergeants to show him how it is done. or get some old soldier to help him. Col.-Sergt.-Inst. Gregory will gladly help the rtecruits out of any difficulty, and put them on the right track for turning out smartly if they apply to him in time. A class of instruction will be held on Monday night at 8.30; all N.C.O.'s are expected to attend. The class arranged for to-night (Fri- day) is cancelled, and the work will be gone into on Monday night. <
