King George has addressed tbe following message:—To my people at this grave moment in the struggle between ray people and a highly organised enemy, who has transgressed the laws of nations and has changed the ordinances that bind civilised Europe together, I appeal tojou. I rejoice in tuy Empire's efforts. I feel pride in the volnntary reFponse from oij subjects all over the world, who hsve aacnflced home and fortune and life itself in ordfr that another may not inherit our free Empire, which their ancestors aud mine built. I ask you to make good these sacrifices. The end is not in sight. More men and yet more men are wanted to keep my armies in the field end through ihem to secure victory and enduring peace. Io ancient days the laikest moments even produce in the men of our race the sternest resolve. I ask yon men of all classes, to ceme forward voluntarily and take your share in the fight. In freely responding to my appeal you will be giving ! support to our brothers who for long months have nobly upheld Britain's past traditions and the glory of her arms."
