Enrolling troops for South Africa in Sydney: The rush of applicants

A correspondent writes: 'An animated scene took place the other day at the Agricultural Society's Grounds. It had been announced that Major Boam would attend the begin the enrolment of 1,000 men to form the new contingent to be sent to South Africa. As a result, Major Boam's office was besieged by a large crown of would-be recruits. The men were required to attend in uniform, and nearly every regiment in the defence force was represented in the crowd. The few police present were powerless to keep the crowd in hand and it was not until half a dozen mounted Lancers arrived that space was cleared in front of the office and order was restored.'
