Recruiting and Publicity

The Times (18 november 1914)

TO THE EDITOR OF THE TIMES.

Sir, — Speaking as one who has had some experience of platform work in connexion with recruiting. I should say that the publication of the details of the defeat of the Prussian Guards with the names of the regiments engaged would be worth a fresh service battalion to each of them. What is the non-conductor which has intervened between the military authorities who call for recruits and the Press Bureau who deprive us of the means of getting them ?

Yours faithfully,

ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE.
Windlesham, Crowborough, Sussex, Nov. 16.
