THE EXPEDITIONARY FORCE.

TO TirE EDITOR. Sir, —By your to-night’s issue I see tho Patriotic Association are discussing the earmarking of £IO,OOO or £20,000 for returned soldiers and their dependents. ‘When my son joined the Expeditionary Force he told me that if he was killed I should have a pension, and ho understood that if he was wounded or disabled ho would have a pension. I do not know who gave him this information. Was ho misinformed? If recruiting is to be successful, tho plain truth about the matter one way or the other should be known. The Defence Office has notified me that now that troopers’ pay is raised to 5s per day the department would retain Is per day of it, and hand the accumulated sum to each trooper on his return. So no returned man will bo penniless. But now that Turkey has joined in. it is more than ever evident the call of tile Empire is, and will be ; for men, and ever more men. Pensions or ri pensions, let ns send them: and rejoice, in spite of fears and tears, to do it. — 1 am, etc., A Trooper's Mother. November 2.
