Mr. W. Schevenels,
International Federation of Trade Unions,
9, Avenue D'Orsay,
Dear Comrade Schevenels,
I was glad to hear this morning that you had agreed with the suggestion that we should make another grant for the Scottish Ambulance Unit. We had heard that one of their ambulances had been destroyed and that two lorries and a car were also required.
At the meeting held last week of the National Council of Labour, Mr. D. Grenfell, M.P., reported on his visit to Spain, as a member of the group of M.P.s who visited there recently. He spoke very highly indeed of the services which the Scottish Ambulance Unit had rendered. You will also have seen in the press about the good work they have done for the wounded at the front and during the bombardments, and how much they have been able to relieve the terrible distress prevailing. It is only right that we should do all we can to keep this good work going.
