Advert. Worcestershire men. Regular and territorial battalions of your regiment are now at the front. They have won honour and renown but must have MORE MEN. Don’t hesitate to come. He who hesitates is lost, don’t wait to be fetched, time and tide wait for no man. Don’t think of self all the time, king and country first, self last.
