A HAWTHORN EXCHANGE says: "Leonard C. Ponsford has volunteered for active service and has been accepted. All of Mrs Ponsford's sons, six in number, are now either at the front or in training. This is probably the record for Australia of volunteers from one family. We congratulate Mrs Ponsford and her sons on their patriotism and self sacrifice."
