4th Dec1915. Lord Derby’s Scheme, part 2


Recruiting at Rugby Drill Hall has been fair during the past week the great majority of the recruits enlisting under Lord Derby’s group system. The proportion of married and single recruits has been about equal.

The armlets for those who have been attested have not yet arrived, but it is anticipated that they will be available for distribution shortly.

A number of ladies have given their assistance to the authorities during the last fortnight, and have rendered valuable service, with the result, that everything is being kept up to date and in readiness for the time when the groups are called up.

Recruiting under the Derby scheme will cease at 4.30 p.m on Saturday, December 11th, and the authorities urge the necessity of every eligible man becoming attested before that date. Intending recruits must take their registration cards to the Drill Hall, on account of the number of fraudulent enlistments, and married men must also produce their marriage certificates and certificates of the birth of their children.

By a new order received at the recruiting offices on Wednesday, the military authorities are prohibited from supplying the Press with any details as to the men who have applied for enlistment or those who have been medically passed and attested. We regret, therefore, that we shall not be able to give any more lists or figures concerning men who have enlisted at Rugby.
