useful & once or twice lately we

have had an issue. Our only 

shortage in rations is bread & for

that we get biscuits, rich, figs &etc

& you see figs, butter & marmalade

is hardly the same as the toast

butter & marmalade we used to

have. The rations are really excellent

& plentiful but everyone seems to 

miss the bread. I wonder if you

could get me an acetylene lamp

- not a bicycle one - but one to

burn in a tent or dug out. I 

also want a kettle if you can

get a compact one that will

hold a quart or more.

  Think I shall want some

under clothes too when the weather
