A WORD FOR THE NORTHERN FUSILIERS' HOCKEY TEAM: Speaking of the departure of the 228th Battalion from Toronto on their way overseas, The Toronto World says:- "The soldiers were big favorites with the fans. They always played clean hockey, and always put their best foot forward. One can hardly say more than this. Doing one's best is all that can be asked of mortals in this world of sadness. Col. Earchman was the most popular officer ever connected wit a hockey club, and he drilled it into his men to play that game. They carried this out at all times. The best wishes of every player, fan and citizen go with the Battalion."
