aid a worthy cause.
THE BLUE CROSS.
The committee of the Horse Show have very kindly given permission to
the Blue Cross Charlton Kennels (Our Dumb Friends' League) to make a
collection on both days at the Show for the funds of that worthy
institution, of which Mrs. Burden, wife of Bt. Lieut.-Col. W. MacC.
Burden, R.F.A. (Deepcut) is hon. secretary. The kennels are
sanctioned as a quarantine station for dogs coming into England, and
have done real good work in taking care of the dogs of soldiers and
sailors coming home from abroad unable to meet the usual quarantine
fees. The kennels also help the poor with free veterinary advice.
In order to aid the fund, Mr. G.E. Studdy, the famous animal artist,
whose drawings of bulldog pups in the most comical situations has made
the whole world laugh, has kindly drawn the accompanying sketch,
replicas of which will be used to aid the collections of Friday and
The handwritten figure seems to indicate that a total of £26 2s 10d was
raised for the charity by the sale of the Bonzo replicas, quite a tidy
sum in those days.
