TO HELP INCURABLES
GENEROUS DONATION GIVEN
A few weeks ago the plight of incurable ex-servicemen, and the lack of provision for suitable attention in institutions, was I brought to public notice in a statement by Mr. Postlewaite, president of Auckland Returned Services' Association. Recently, Mr. Postlewaite received from Mrs. Dive, of Point England Road, St. Helier's, a cheque for £7 and from her son, Mr. M. Dive, a cheque for £3 to help cases of incurables in need of assistance. In acknowledging the generous donation, Mr. Postlewaite stated that the money would be put into a special trust account and would be used as the donors desired. He said it was very gratifying to find | such practical sympathy for unfortunate ex-service personnel who could very well be termed the forgotten men.
