THE BATTALION OF DEATH The regiment of Russian women, which has seen active service of the most terrible kind on the eastern front, was organized by Mme. Batchkalev (on the left). She fought first in the regular Russian army, then conceived the idea of a regiment of women, received permission to form it and became its colonel. She has been wounded and is decorated with many medals. The women fight with heroism and with fury. The Germans are said to fear them far more than the Russian men. Other women's battalions were later formed with the approval of the War Department. Any woman over sixteen who can present certificates of character, education and citizenship is eligible. If the recruits pass the rigid physical eramination they are initiated into the regulations of the battalion and sworn in. They ivear the regulation uniform and accept the eristing military rules, and, in addition, nine others uchich shovo uoith what terrible earnestness they hare entered upon their undertaking. All the members of the battalions are bound to obserre the follouing: 1. First of all, the honor, freedom and welfare of the country. 2. Iron discipline. 3. Firmness and stedfastness of spirit and purpose. 4. Bravery and recklessness. 5. Precision, accuracy, persistency and rapidity in the erecution of orders. 6. Absolute honesty and a serious attitude toward the work. 9. Cheerfulness, politeness, kindness, sympathy, cleanliness and punctuality. 8. Consideration for the opinion of others, the fullest mutual confidence and nobility of purpose. 9. Quarrels ani personal feuds are inadmissible as degrading. Those guilty of breaking the abore rules shall be subjected to the most rigorous punishment for disgracing the name of the Russian woman." Stern rules indeed! © Underwood & Underwood

The English men at Ruleben (on the left) prove by their faces, as well as by the poster, that their condition is fairly enjoyable.
