The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 79
Sons of New Zealand ! You have nobly answered our beloved Empire's call for help in this time of her great need. The women of New Zealand are proud of you. Some of us .have been privileged to give our sons. We shall watch your movements closely, and we feel sure that you will uphold the high traditions which the indomitable Anzacs have placed on the pages of history. We wish you God-speed and a speedy and safe return with the full glory of a great victory crowning your gallant efforts. May your example be an incentive to those eligibles who have, as yet, left the call to arms unanswered, to obey promptly the urgent appeal.
J. Holland,Mayoress, Christchurch.
