An aeroplane is to be used at Dudley to advertise a large recruiting rally for the Worcestershire Regiments to be held on the afternoon of Saturday, October 2. Weather permitting, the aeroplane will fly over the town at about 3pm at a low altitude so that people can see it well and will drop recruiting literature to announce the rally, It will then alight on the County Cricket Ground and remain there for an hour or so before flying away. Trooper F H Brown of the Worcestershire Yeomanry has been reported wounded and is now in hospital in Exeter. Trooper Brown was struck by a piece of shell while cooking breakfast in a dug-out.
