Remember the awful and terrible side of the war, and not think only of the glory of it

Windsor women were applauded for their war work, but also challenged, by a speaker as part of the National Mission.

The National Mission

We women of Windsor have reason to be very grateful for the services and meetings arranged for us in connection with the National Mission.
On the first Monday Mrs Creighton addressed a very large gathering in the Town Hall. She spoke of the solemn time which the Mission ought to be to us all, and asked us to remember the awful and terrible side of the war, and not think only of the glory of it. She dwelt on the great and good work that women are doing in this unprecedented time, and impressed upon us the fact that the best welcome we could prepare for our soldiers and sailors, and the one most worthy of them after all their sufferings, was a home which had been kept pure and good during their absence.
