Nowadays it is regarded as quite the correct thing for soldiers to wear moustaches; some of the Evesham Territorials, who were clean shaven before the war, have been sedulously cultivating moustaches since they have been in training.

It may not be generally known that it is claimed that the old Worcestershire Militia introduced the moustache into the British Army.
