This institution, originated in memory of his Royal Highness the late Duke of Cambridge,
was established for providing an asylum, with allowances, for the vtidoivs of non-commissioned
officers and privates of Her Majesty's Land Forces, married in accordance with the rules
of the service.
Widows are generally eligible for admission at the age of fifty ; but those whose hus¬
bands have died on service in time of war, from wounds received in action, or from disease
contracted thereby, may be admitted as candidates under that age.
It is a fundamental rule that not more than one widow from each regiment, or battalion,
be an inmate of the asylum at tbe s^me period, except under extraordinary circumstances,
to be approved by the Committee.
There are at present 48 widows in the asylum, but the Committee are anxious to increase
the number and to complete the building. The asylum, when finished, will accommodate
160 widows, or one at least from each regiment and battalion in Her Majesty's service.
The Committee are desirous, the efore, of urging the claims of this the first and only
existing Asylum for Soldiers' Widows, affording them not temporary relief alone, but a
permanent home and support, and tending to improve the general character of soldiers'
wives ; and they earnestly solicit the assistance and liberality of the public at large in
enabling them to carry out this national work.
