At the banquet the Military Comman- dant presided. After the loyal toast was honored the Chairman proposed, "His Ex- cellency the Governor." He said it was needless for him to recapitulate his Excel- lency's good qualities: They honored him because he was the representative of his Majesty the King. They were all soldiers still, and they honored his Excellencv because he was a soldier, and because of his personal worth. (Applause.) They more than esteemed him; they loved
him". (Applause.)
The Governor responded. In sub- mitting ''The Veterans," he said it was a great pleasure for him to come among men who, like himself, had spent the best part of their life with the colors. Those days, when each of them said his regiment was the best in the service, were the hap- piest of their lives. (Applause.) That was the fifth occasion on which he had been present at their annual luncheon, and four of them had fallen within the war period. During that time several of their comrades had passed to the great beyond, and they honored their memory that day. They had obeyed the call of country. The Empire now was at the most critical stage in the greatest crisis in its history, and if the nation were true to itself it would win through with flying colors. (Applause.) The victory would only be won by strength of nerve and temper, and it would bring with it the freedom of the world, in- cluding that of unfortunate Russia. There was nothing which Germany had estab- lished that victory might not cast down, and nothing that Germany had cast down that it might not restore. To-day they were linked up with all the free democra- cies of the world, and an alliance like that
must win victory in the end. German spread-eagleism had to go. The nation was called upon to bear and suffer much, but no more than what their forefathers had suffered for their freedom and secu-
rity. The dial of the clock of destiny now pointed to the western front, and it was there that big battalions, as in the days of Napoleon, counted. They therefore had to put every ounce of their strength into the struggle, in men, money, and materials. (Applause.) A fortnight ago he started his 41st year of service, and he could therefore count himself as a Veteran without being egotistical. (Hear, hear.) He urged them to do their utmost to get
recruits.
Corporal Ashby, who responded, said they knew mistakes had been made, but as Britons the men in the army had held on till those mistakes had been rectified. There had been reverses, but the spirit
of the race was shown in the determined
manner in which they had turned. (Ap- plause.)
Captain J. Moore, R.N., said he felt proud at having been requested to respond on behalf of the naval veterans. The British Fleet was the grandest navy that ever floated upon the sea.
In proposing the toast of "Our Allies," Senator J. Newland (chairman of the State Recruiting Committee), said more than half the Government of the world were engaged in the present struggle, and the people of the nations at war with the Allies numbered 1,405,000,000. Aus- tralia had done much, but there was much
more that she could do.
The Minister for Home and Territories (Hon. P. McM. Glynn), replying, said throughout the vicissitudes of the years and the ever-changing relations of nations, France had never allowed her temper to be affected solely by the material aspect of things. Her old and chivalrous spirit, her sincere faith in Hie unseen Provi- dence that sustained, settled, and restored, was active again, and had been mani- fested by many of her sons aud daughters in the cleansing trials of these days. The United States, their latest, and, in re- sources, most powerful, Ally, was true to the lofty and liberal temper of the basic declaration of 1776. The United States was coming slowly, it might be, but resolutely, to the front. Transport was the great need. She had now ..... shipyards, 700 ways, and half a million of men, who should produce 1,600 ships. By the end of the year the States would have built about 3,000,000 tons of ships. (Applause.)
'"Departed Comrades'' was submitted by
Lieutenant Gordon.
The Mitcham Camp Band, under Ser- geant-Major Elliott, rendered selections.
At the termination of the dinner, the chairman of the Corps of Veterans (Mr. W. J. P. Giddings) presented Mr. J. Richardson with an inscribed gold watch, on behalf of the veterans, in recognition of the good work he had done for them.
