f THE WELSH HOSPITAL, NETLEY. BARMOUTH BED INSTALLED. I The wonderful amount of good work done at the above excellent Institution is well known all over the country. So far, according to statistics, the good work done at this Hospital has not been surpassed by any other hospital in the country. Some of the Barmouth woun- ded boys have already tasted of its com- forts and blessing and are loud in their praise of the attention they received while they were there. Our kind-hearted and genial Nurse (Nurse Roberts) whose thoughts are constantly with the afflicted, conceived the beautiful and truly Christian idea of endowing a bed, to be designed as the Barmouth Bed at the Welsh Hospital, whose Matron,Miss Evans, is well known to the Nurse. I inquiries were made as to the ex-, pense, and it was found that 26/- a week for the duration of the War, will ensure ,to ary one of our boys, who may be un- fortunately compelled to seek the shelter of a hospital, accommodation of a bed, over which a tablet will be placed The Barmoutb Bed." Not only will he feel more at home, knowing that he is the guest as ic were of those who give him loving thoughts, but be will receive little extra attentions which will gladden his heart. The Matron wrote It is very kind and generous of you to think of the Welsh Hospital, and your kind offer is a very welcome one. I only hope that many other towns in Wales will follow the splendid example of Barmouth, by endowing Beds in the Welsh Hospital i while the war lasts." When we think of our brave and I splendid fellows, who sacrifice home, comforts and even their lives in their noble response to the call of duty, who j can grudge a shilling a week, if it only helps to cheer the hearts of a few. The following are the kind friends who have undertaken the endowment of a "Barmouth Bed as long as the war lasts. The first payments having been made last Saturday.
