   *Supreme Sacrifice


The executive of the Sturt street Men's branch, Essendon Red Cross Society (Metal Workers' Section) desire to thank those scholars at the Flemington State school who voluntarily and in their own playtime undertook certain work, viz., filing and burnishing over 1000 pieces of metal connected with surgical appliances for shattered limbs, thus  facilitating the assembling and rapid completion of these instruments for prompt despatch to Flanders, and also Mr. W. McK. Gordon for supplying the necessary tools for the work.


It does not appear to be generally recognised among the local residents that the opportunity exists for those unable to serve the Empire other wise, to render valuable assistance by joining the working parties in the preparation of the numberless articles which are being called for by the various Red Cross Societies and rendered absolutely necessary during this struggle, which the lists of casualties reveal from time to time. When our soldiers return they must surely differentiate in their estimation of the men who have given up their leisure evenings and holidays to provide these requisites, against those who have neither worked nor fought for their country in its present, grave crisis. In many instances time to the value of over £20 per man--in less than four months - has been furnished by "Uardy," Sturt street, and other local working parties against which the contribution of a few shillings, involving no sacrifice, sinks into insignificance. In the not far distant future the question will be asked in no uncertain language, "What did you do for your country?"
