The British home Front:  The Western Times appeals to its readers to play their part in protecting infantrymen and artillery men  at the front:

SANDBAGS
Millions Wanted, but They Must be the Right Kind
DO TRENCH WORK AT HOME

“… The soldier’s life depends on the integrity of the sandbag sent to him, so do not betray him by sending him bags wrongly made…They must have 1in. turnings, and must be strongly made. The Mayoress’s Depot at Exeter is open to receive any amount of sandbags, and they should be sent in without delay”.
