'The Design on the lid of tobacco tins sent to the Scottish Regiments
The Scottish Regiments’ Gift Fund has been able to forward about twenty thousand specially designed tins, each containing a quarter of a pound of tobacco, and also twenty thousand pipes to the soldiers serving in Scottish regiments in South Africa. The committee have also shipped a large number of consignments of clothing and comforts received from all parts of the Kingdom. The Queen has been pleased to express her approval of the work done by the committee in the following letter, written by Sir Arthur Bigge:—“I am directed by the Queen to thank you for the specimen of tins containing tobacco, twenty thousand of which have been sent to the non-commissioned officers and men of Scottish regiments in South Africa, which you have been good enough to submit for Her Majesty's acceptance. At the same time the Queen congratulates the Scottish Regiments' Gift Fund Committee on the success of their generous and patriotic work".'
