"Since war was declared, the Commissioners have encouraged the enlistment of their staff by giving half pay to every officer and workman who enlisted for overseas service. In addition to the following on active service many employees are also serving their country on home service."
"In the matter of employment
of workmen, the Commissioners have adopted the rule that whenever possible,
soldiers who return from the front will be engaged in preference to all
others. During the season in the Warf Sheds was gratuitously granted for
the assembling of all donations received for the soldiers at the front,
pending shipment. No charges were imposed on supplies handled throughout
the year for the Belgian Relief Committee and the Red Cross Societies."
