The Recruiting Department issued from their headquarters on Friday the following striking incentive to recruiting:- AVENGE SCARBOROUGH - UP AND AT 'EM NOW
The wholesale murder of innocent women and children demands vengeance. Men of England, the innocent victims of German brutality call upon you to avenge them. Show German barbarians that Britain's shores cannot be bombarded with impunity. Duty calls you now. Go to-day to the nearest recruiting depot and offer your services for King and, home and country.
Reports from all parts of the country show that the German raid has given a decided impetus to recruiting.
