ON ST. DAV!D'S DAY. "FLAG DAY" FOR WELSH ,II SOLDIERS. SPECIAL APPEAL TO SWANSEA. n? <?untess of Plymouth and. Mrs. LIovd ?-? addre?sM i.he following Jettfr to the ? ? ?? ?? Dd. Davle.5) ot t?J '???? ?? ?s invoked -h.a assistance o the Mayorq of the boroughs. and o.f the cha.irmcu of District and Parish Councils throug'hout Wales. to hold a, Flag Day and a. Flag and Picture Poot, Card Dav in every part of the PriuoipaJit.y on 8't. Da-vid's Day, or an adiEL-cent convenient date in aid of the ,n aid of th6 National kiind for Welsh 'h'OOp/¡. Our ap- peal me-l wnh a ready a,nd eympathctm rf- sponae. In 1915 a i'iag Day was held in 117 centres, which realistd E6,060; in 1916 a. I'lag and Picture Post Oa.i-d Day was held in 139 wntrea, which realised X4,871 a, total of JE10.931. T'hjg was siipdlemertetl in 1916 by a, special effort in London which resulted in an addition of .65,675 to t)h€ total. In 1917 we are still faced with a continu- ance of th° war and with the pa.i'tioipa.tion in it of a. vastly fncreased number of Welsh troops, and we arc pa/t'tic'nlarly deair- ous tha.t an even still more su&c&ssful effort be ma-de this year to associate the Xa/tional. ) Day of Wak? with the weLfare o'f her National troops. Tha National Fund keeps in constant tou&h with the com?a.ndiug oNccra of tihe va-rious units of Welsh reg]- CK,_ whic, h mcnts. a.nd the long list cf ocmforts which it ha? despatched in responEC to r?uiBi- t?'OBs reocive<l from t.h<? commanding o?c'ers up to the end of 1916 will ahow the scope and the success of its efforts. The committee ha.a fBdfavot'red to the very bMt of ]ta abi!- )ty to avoid every form of overlapping and inequalitv of distribution. It has also re- trained in overy way from intei'fprir'g with the So!end:dtMat efforts I vhioh have been made throughout Wales, itt3 aim having been to supplement and to as- sist these elforta. We have received a vcTT large number of letters bearing testimony to thj g'rea.t value of the work done by the TSfational Fund for Welsh Troops. The com- mittee foreBcee that its future usefulness may have to be on a mcn-e extended scale, for un- der btedty t.1o prolongation of the war and the inorea6i:'g dimcuity and expense of ob- t,aiT).ing material for conversion tnto wcollsn comforta is handicapping th& efforts of the local Indies' Work Conmitteea. rhere will also be a'grcab deal of work to be done dur- ing the long pe.iod cf dMrobili6ation when the war is over, a.nd which ea.n only be effectively oarried out by a central orgailisa- tion auoh a-s thia, and however distant that period may a-ppear M be. the ocia.a-iit,tee .s anxious to ma.ke due pr<.pa,ratjon W'1.Ích will enable it to ru.eL the requirementa of tile meH dliring that intery &I.
