The half-yearly meeting of the Scarborough-Clifton Patriotic Association was held in the Palace Hall on Wednesday night, 9th inst., the president (Mr. W. A. Sweeney) being in the chair. The work of the half-year was read from the secretary's report. Twelve local men returned from the front during the half year, and each one has been entertained at a public social and presented with a gold signet ring. Five men who were leaving for the front have been entertained and presented with a leather pocket wallet, one being given a leather money belt, and combination knife, fork, and spoon. A concert has been held in aid of the funds the which resulted in £12 0s 6d being added to the finances. Definite arrangements have been made for addition to Roll of Honour and all soldiers names who have enlisted from Scarborough, Clifton, and Coalcliff, to be added to the number now on the tablet.
