Recruiting children or putting pressure on their relatives?

Children in Bradfield were subjected to a lecture from those encouraging their older brothers and fathers to join up.

February 15th 1915

Messrs E J Forster and F Wright, a deputation from the South Berks Recruiting Association were allowed to address the children on the War, for a short time before noon today.
