LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. I THE NATIONAL SERVICE LEAGUE. I To the Editor. Sir,—Ignorance may explain, but it does not excuse the reckless figures as to expense, numbers, etc., with which our opponents try to frighten their presumably ignorant audiences. It will be found that no assertions of this nature which depend upon figures for their effect will ever stand the test of arithmetic. With regard to the alleged 220 million increase in the expense of our proposed Territorial Force-sufficient in numbers and training to make even the attempt to invade this country an absolute impossibility-over the expense of the present Force, declared by every soldier to be insufficient in both respects, here are the official figures A. On the basis of the cost of the Regular Army— £ 3,777,484. B. On Lord Haldane's figures as to the cost of the Special Reserve— £ 3,724,657. On the 11th April, 1913, in the House of Commons, the War Minister accepted the rough estimate of about £ 4,000,000, given by the late Mr George Wyndham. Yours faithfully, Hereford, E. P. BAILY. I Hereford, February 25, 1914.
