5 July 1918

Everything connected with the war and the soldier is wanted, no matter how small or seemingly unimportant…When peace returns, and men are back at home, memory of the great days and adventures through which they lived will grow dim with the advancing years, and, unless some permanent record is established, ultimately pass into forgetfulness. The Government strongly holds the view that their sacrifices in the war, the silent sufferings of their relatives during their absence, and the efforts of the present generation, are far too sacred to allow this fate to befall them…To future generations it will be a never failing source of inspiration.
