ROYAL FLYING CORPS FAMILIES’ RELIEF FUND.
TO THE EDITOR. Sir, —The Aerial League of the British Empire propose, with the concurrence of Brigadier-general Sir David Henderson, K.C.8.. D.5.0., and Captain AI. T. Sueter, R.N., G. 8., to give such help as may be possible to .the wives and children of the petty officers, non-commissioned officers, and men of the naval and military wings of tho Royal Flying Corps. Everyone must admire tho devotion which these men display in carrying out their onerous and arduous duty, and it would be a source of great comfort to them, and relieve them of much anxiety, if they knew that their wives and children would be well looked after during their absence. The Aerial League therefore appeal for funds to enable them to carry out this object, and they feel confident that they will not appeal in vain. The fund will in no way clash with the Prince of Wales’s National Relief Fund, because it is intended solely for the relief of the families of the married men in the Royal Flying Corps who are on active service. Any sums, however small, will be gratefully received, and will be acknowledged in the Press. Cheques or post office orders may be sent either to the hon. treasurer of the Aerial League, at Windsor House, Kingsway, W.C., or to Messrs Cox and Co., 16 Charing Cross, S.W., who have kindly consented to open an account to the credit of the Royal Flying Corps’ families’ relief fund.—l am, etc., H. T., Arbtitii.vot, Major-general, Chairman of the Aerial League of the Bi’itish Empire. Windsor House. Kingsway, W.C., August 15, 1914,
