It is quite true that in tho past regiments recnxited from tho country districts have- again and again made themselves-conspicuous ior gallantry and endurance, but tho changed conditions ol modern warfare appear to have enabled the town-bred 'soldier to rather more than catch up with his country-bred comrade.
