I understand that considerable sums were owing by various auxiliary companies in respect of mess supplies, and, as no individuals still serving with the division could be held directly responsible for these debts, the Commandant appealed for subscriptions to clear them off. There was a ready response, and the amount forthcoming represented subscriptions of about 25s. per member. The matter was a domestic one, as cadets paid their own messing expenses and managed their messes themselves, but I am satisfied that contributions were purely voluntary.
