WORCESTERSHIRE AND THE WAR
A Good Days Recruiting
On Monday, 105 young men presented themselves at the Broadstreet Recruiting Office, and of these 17 joined for immediate service, 72 were enrolled in their groups, and 16 were rejects. Of late the percentage of "medical rejects" has been rather high, but Monday’s proportion was particularly small. These 89 present and prospective recruits were drawn from the Worcester district only.
