More thanks

It was not just the men who enjoyed the parcels from the Field Comforts Commission.

“The boys of this Brigade send their thanks for all the good things [their parcels] contained. The sugar was hailed with great appreciation. I see a number going without sugar in their tea in order to give their horses a piece or two, so in this case the ponies would send their appreciation if able.” (1)
