I Llandrindod War Relief, I REPORT OF THE WORK. I A largely-attended meeting of the. Llandrindod War Relief Committee waif held at the County Buildings, Llandrindod Wells, oil Monday evening, when Mr J. O. Button (chairman) presided. The chairman moved a resolution expressing the deep sense of loss which the committee had sustained by the death of the late Mrs A. L. Careless, and sympathy with .Major A. Lindesay Careless and all members of the family.-This was carried by a standing vote. The lion. sec. (Mr Herbert Oliver) reported that the collections for the Christmas parcels for local men on service resulted as followsNorth Ward, i9 12s 4d; South Ward, £ 22 19s; East Ward, il4 14s 6d; West Ward, kIS 9s; rural district, f7 16s 3d; total, t-,3 lis Id. The parcels dispatched were as follows Home parcels, 152: foreign parcels, 184; total, 336. t51 14s 3d was spent in goods, and the postages cost fl2 Os 9d; total, t63 15s. The balances in hand were as follows:—Last year, £: Ss IOd; this year, £ 9 16s Id; total, £ 13 4s Id. On the suggestion of Mr C. H. Williams, it was agreed that the balance should be placed at the disposal of the Ladies' Clothing Committee for sending garments, socks, &c., to local men on service as required. The Clothing Committee reported that nearly 200 gar- ments had been sent to local soldiers who applied for them in response to the letters sent in the Christmas parcels. Nearly 4,500 garments had been voluntarily made in Llandrindod Wells, material for which had been supplied by the sub-committee. In addition to that, over 8,000 garments had been packed and dis- patched by them from the county of Radnor during the last 14 months. The ladies made a strong appeal to memlx rs of the Joint Committee of the War Relief Fund to help them to obtain materials for packing, the demand for which was very great, the magnificent gift of canvas and waterproof paper given by Maj&r Murray 12 months ago being exhausted. The audited" accounts were presented, and hearty thanks: accorded to the auditor (Mr Jansen Griffith). The hon. secretary presented to the meeting a huge pile of letters and postcards received from soldiers in acknowledgment of the Christmas parcels sent to them. —Mr C. H. Williams suggested that the letters sihould be published in the local papers, hut the chairman said it would require special issues of the paper to publish all.—Mr Oliver said he and Mrs Moseley had read through all the letters. Many were very interesting. The general tone was that of extreme cheerfulness, and a hard-worked phrase was "in the pink. "-It was deemed to -preserve' the letters and cards at the Public Library. It was decided to hold the Welsh Flag Day, as usual, on St. David's Day, and also to give support to the Y. W.C.A. Women Workers' Fund. Discussion took place with regard to the possibility of getting a complete and accurate illuminated roll of honour prepared and exhibited a.t the Public Library, but it was generally felt that, although this should be done, such a, list would at present be only of a tempor- ary character. It was decided to proceed, and the co- oIR-rat-ion of all is solicited, so that the list can be made as accurate and complete as possible.
