HC Deb 27 October 1943 vol 393 c166
15. Sir H. Webbe

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether handkerchiefs are issued to officers and men of the Royal Air Force; and, if not, what facilities are provided to enable them to obtain these necessary articles coupon free?

Sir A. Sinclair

Officers receive an allowance of coupons to cover all clothing requirements, including handkerchiefs. Airmen needing handkerchiefs are provided by their commanding officers with certificates which enable them to purchase handkerchiefs without coupons.
