100 Years Ago: Recruits for Horse and Mechanical Transport Needed

The Intelligencer October 21, 1916 (page 7)

“On Lookout for Recruits. Lieut. W. G. Williams arrived in Belleville on Thursday night from Barriefield camp to take charge of the Army Service Corps work in connection with the 235th battalion.

Lt. Williams wishes to secure recruits for immediate Overseas duty in Horse and Mechanical Transport. These fascinating branches of the service should appeal to many who are used to handling horses or driving cars.

Recruits for the Motor Transport will receive much valuable practical instruction in the great repair shops of England and France as well as the driving end.

Anyone wishing information about the above should apply to Lt. Williams at the Army Service Corps office on Church street next to the county offices.”
