Motor Ambulance I WHAT THE STAR SHILLING I FUND PROVIDED. In April, 1915, the Red Cross authorities sent an urgent appeal for a mot-or ambulance to be provided by the people of Llanelly for use on the Western front. The matter was im- mediately taken up by the Star," and a shilling fund was opened in our columns. Lady Howard gave the movement a good start with a sub- scription of C20, and the late Sir Stafford Howard supplemented this with C5. Later on, Mr. Dd. Brazell, R.A.M., came forward with the offer to organize a concert at the Market Hall. This was duly held, the con- cert proving to be a great social and financial success. As a result, the R-400 required was quickly secured, and a well-equipped ambulance was purchased and despatched without delay to France where it did admir- able work.
