Mr BRYSON (BOURKE, VICTORIA) - A friend of mine has received from his son who is with the Australian Occupation Forces in Japan a letter from which the following is an extract -

I am going to ask you to do me another favour. The canteen supplies here are terrific as far as the Army is concerned. Our ration is half a cake a fortnight, so I am going to ask you to get gome for me and forward it on, as it is impossible to make half a cake do one for a fortnight. From what I can see of this Australian contingent, the bulk of the canteen supplies from Australia go to the " Pomms ". One instance : 32 cases of canteen goods arrived here on the RiverMitta about a fortnight ago, and the Indians copped the whole issue.
