As a result of an official organisation havlnjt been crJed recently to carry Parcel., to the British prisoner, in Germany, insuring proper transmission through a neu- tral carrier the "Khaki" Magazine of Imperial House Kingsway, London, has started a fund to supply toofl. and comforts for those who have no relatives or triendg to look after them, as It is known that these poor fellow! are not getting a proper supply of food.' An appeal is made to you for Two Dollars, only, a. there are so many demands made upon you in other directions. This money will go for the direct benefit of the prisoners, an there is no cost of transmission- srw r.o waste or any description, information having been estab- lished showing the kind of food and clothing etc.. which can be sent without confiscation by the German govern- ment. This appeal should get a large response as there is no other fund which deals with this particular condition. The "Khaki" Magazine and Cabted News Sheet was created primarily as a gift for the Overseas Soldiers, bringing them late news from their homes, it is now supplying, free of charge, lu addition to the soMiers at the front and in training, the various hospitals In linglaml and France, as well as the Grand Fleet, It is a purely patriotic endeavor and in uo way commercial.
