As a result of the request sent to His Grace the Archbishop of Westminster by Sir Oliver Leese, Commander-brChief in the Far East, three C.W.L. canteen' workers left London for Calcutta on Saturday night. Their final destination is Burma. The party is led by Mrs.
O'Shea, late of the wife of Lieut.-Colonel O'Shea, R.A.M.C. Both Mrs. O'Shea and her two companions, Mrs. Playle and Mrs. Travers, have received some preliminary training in the C.W.L. clubs in .London.
Three mobile canteensare walling for them In India and Lady Rendel has been informed by our Chaplain out there that it will be easy to recruit locally any number of willing assistants.. The C.W.L. is, however, expecting to send out further teams shortly. Sir Oliver Leese gave a reception at the Dorchester Hotel on April 6 for all the workers from the various organisations who are going to the Far East. Lord and Lady Wavell and many other distinguished guests attended the reception, and Lady Rendel was able to introduce her team to them.
