Seventy-five members of the Baltimore Legionaires who fought under General Allenby in Palestine met this morning in the law offices of Captain E. Milton Atfield and sent the following telegram to Sir Esme Howard, British Ambassador to the United States:

“The Ex-Legionaires of Baltimore who fought with General Allenby under His Majesty’s forces in Palestine stand ready to re-enlist for services in the Holy Land. We stand prepared to embark at once. We await your call.”
