We are always glad to welcome regimental literature, and the

Manchester Regiment Gazette, which has just appeared in a new form, is a first-rate example of its kind. " A regimental paper does a world of good," says General Fane, the new Colonel of the Manchester Regiment, in a preface. The gazette provides information of every sort about the various battalions of the Regiment. It is illustrated, and the chief humorous effort is unusually good. The editor tells us that the last time he wrote his editorial notes he was in a dug-out in the Ypres salient in the summer of 1915—but those notes were never published. Every one who has served in a Manchester battalion ought to become a subscriber.
