lost nine years ago,
"as fresh as if it
it was indeed a windfall"
You mqy remember sending a supply of Punchbowle
tobacco to me when I was serving with my regiment on the North
West Frontier in 1942.
Much of ibis tobacco was smoked, but a few tins were
in my kit when the regiment moved to Burma. During transit my
kit was lost, only too common a tragedy in those days.
In some miraculous fashion, and through the good ofices
of the Army authorities, it has just been returned io me in 'bis
country. The clothes were gnrecognizable with mildew, but 'he
Tobacco Was as fresh as if it bad just been bought, and in these dgys
at 4/ Td. an ounce it was indeed a windfall.
