Messrs. Hennen and Company, of Quality court, Chancery lane, W.C., write to state that Sir Herbert Raphael Bart, M.P., has no interest in the Hare Hall Estate, Gidea Park, on which estate the Second Sportsman’s Battalion will encamp. This estate is the property of Major Charles Ernest Castellan, 2nd Essex Battalion R.F.A. (T.), and Major Victor Edward Castellan, 1st Essex Battalion R.F.A. (T.). The Daily Mirror regrets it was misinformed in stating that this was one of Sir Herbert’s estates.
