Clapton Orient are fortunate in being able to call upon practically the whole of the players who assisted them last season.
The new men are Hodson, inside forward, from Burnley; Ayres, outside left, from Leytonstone; and Bullock, full back, of Crystal Palace.
New goalkeepers are Watkins, with Tottenham Hotspur last season, and Hoffman, employed at a local munition factory. Cushway, the Leytonstone full back, will also assist.
Lieutenant James Hugall, the Orient goalkeeper, is again wounded, and is a hospital patient at Denmark Hill.
