HC Deb 20 November 1918 vol 110 cc3444-5W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War if the arrangements for sending parcels to soldiers now at the front remain in force as before, bearing in mind that some of the men may be sent home before they can receive the parcels; and if any arrangements have been made with regard to Christmas parcels sent to such men?


There has been no change in the arrangements for the dispatch of parcels to soldiers at the front. Parcels for any man who is absent from his unit are redirected, provided that the man has acquainted the post orderly of his unit with his new address. This arrangement will apply to Christmas parcels. Parcels intended for delivery to the British Expeditionary Force by Christmas must be posted not later than the 14th December, and for delivery to the Italian Expeditionary Force not later than the 9th December.
