The creation of the Memorial

 
EX-SERVICE "DYERS" HOT-POT.
     There was a very enjoyable gathering at the Queen's Hotel, Waterloo, on Wednesday of last week, when about sixty ex-service male employees of Johnson Bros. (Dyers) foregathered to spend a social evening. Mr. M. Pritchard presided over the proceedings, which took the form of a hot-pot and smoking concert. The supper was well served, and was thoroughly relished by all who participated.
     The loyal toast was musically honoured, and the rest of the evening was agreeably devoted to harmony, an excellent programme having been arranged by a committee consisting of Messrs. A. McPherson, W. Condron, A. Nelson, H. Burnett, and F.H. Burnett. The artistes were enthusiastically received, and there were several recalls. The following were among the items submitted:- Pianoforte solo, Mr. F. Evans; duets, "The Battle Eve" and "Tenor and Baritone," Messrs. A. McPherson and R. Wright; song, "Down on the Farm," Mr. A. Williams; song "Come to the Fair," Mr. T. Grimshaw; song, "Irish Jubilee," Mr. J. Fisher; song, "My Old Shako," Mr. A. McPherson; song, "Senora," Mr. R. Wright; song, "Shipmates o' Mine," Mr. F. Evans; song, "Cassidy," Mr. J. Murray; song, "Mona," Mr. M. Pritchard; song, "Little Bits of French," Mr. McDougal. Mr. F. Evans was an able accompanist. 
     The Chairman voiced the company's thanks to the artistes, and their hope that another such gathering might be organised in the near future. (Hear, hear.) They were all very greatly indebted to the committee for their forethought in arranging such a pleasant function, and for the efficiency with which they had carried it through. (Hear, hear.) They also remembered with gratitude all those employees at the works who had sent parcels out to them whilst they were on H.M. service. (Applause.)
     Mr. F.H. Burnett, on behalf of the committee, said it was a real pleasure to see how well everyone had enjoyed the evening. The committee were greatly indebted to Mr. Nield, the courteous host, for the way he had entered into their arrangements.
     Mr. McPherson seconded the vote of thanks proposed by the Chairman, which was heartily carried. Mr. Nield acknowledging the compliment paid to himself, said he hoped to do even better for the ex-service men of Johnson's the next time he had the pleasure of carrying out any such arrangements.
     The gathering broke up after singing Auld Lang Syne, and dispersed with happy memories of a "top-hole" evening.
