WARSHIP WEEK
TO THE INHABITANTS OF PENMAENMAWR.
WARSHIP WEEKS are being held in all parts of the country under the auspices of the NATIONAL SAVINGS MOVEMENT, and the LOCAL SAVINGS COMMITTEE has been approached to make a further effort to raise funds to finance the War.
By arrangement with the Admiralty a Ship Adoption Scheme has, been inaugurated and PENMAENMAWR as been allotted a MOTOR TORPEDO BOAT, provided that at least he cost of the hull which is £25,000—is subscribed. The cost of the complete Ship, fully equipped, is £70,000.
We have, therefore, arranged for a WARSHIP WEEK from MARCH 14th to MARCH 21st, during which it will be our aim to raise the necessary minimum of £25,000 Having secured this figure during the week, all subsequent savings to the end of the year will be allocated to the cost of completing the Ship.
We earnestly appeal to you to invest all you can and, by so doing, give your full support to the National Effort. We want everyone to be in it—rich and poor. Every Penny counts.
The need is great. It is most URGENT.
You can take up any of the following Investments at any Bank, at the Selling Centre provided, and at the Post Office:-

2 1/2% NATIONAL WAR BONDS…………………. No LIMIT.
3% SAVINGS BONDS……………………………… No LIMIT.
3% DEFENCE BONDS ………. Maximum Holding, £1,000
POST OFFICE SAVINGS BANK DEPOSITS.
NATIONAL SAVINGS CERTIFICATES…..Maximum Holding, 500 CERTIFICATES

We feel sure you will make an extra effort and an extra sacrifice so that the result may be worthy of our wonderful forces on Land and Sea and in the Air,
On behalf of the Penmaenmawr War Savings
Appeal Committee
L. F BARTLE, Chairman.
J. IVOR JONES Secretary.
