HC Deb 23 July 1941 vol 373 c897W
Sir L. Lyle

asked the Secretary of State for War what is the daily Army ration of tobacco, cigarettes and chocolate, respectively?

Mr. Sandys

There is no ration of tobacco or chocolate for troops serving at home. At certain overseas stations there is a free weekly issue of two ounces of tobacco or cigarettes to each man. Chocolate is included in the ration scales of certain overseas commands as an alternative to cheese, the scale of issue being two ounces of chocolate in place of one ounce of cheese.
