In Italy, as you know, supplies of all kinds were indeed at a premium. Thank you for posting those excellent examples. When the Italian vets got to NW Europe, they could only gape at the piles of munitions and supplies and ammunition - from what I've read, anyway. They also had to deal with the chickenshit of being back in the First Canadian Army and not the easygoing Eighth.
Yet another reason to be proud of our Canadian vets - who could make do with next to nothing (and who all too often had to pay for things like shell shortages with their lives).
