20th REINFORCEMENTS

NOW BEING MOBILISED

LOCAL DRAFT 50 MEN SHORT.

The mobilisation of the 20th Reinforcements at Featherston Camp was commenced to-day, and should be completed by the end of the week, the quotas from the various groups and military districts arriving daily.

The quota from No. 5 Group (Wellington City and Suburbs) went into camp this morning 169 strong, or 50 below the number required. The shortage was wholly confined to the infantry. The number required for this arm of the service being 186, an additional 10 j were summoned to make up possible shortages. The shortages, however, proved greater than anticipated, only 126 ovjt of the 196 called up putting in an appearance. A further 10 men parading on the chance of getting into camp at once their services were accepted, and thus the infantry quota mustered 136 in place of 186 required. At 10 o'clock the assembled draft, together with the 22nd n.c-o.'s, were marched through the principal streets to Lambton Station, where the men entrained. Going through the city they were headed by the sth '(Wellington) Regiment Band, playing patriotic airs. It was snowing at the time, but the men nevertheless were decidedly cheerful As a body, too, they presented an imposing appearance, being the best draft physically that Wellington has sent in for some considerable time.
