A true silver lining

Frances, aged 4, with tins from a CARE package
My dad died in 1947 and I was only 7, so my mum was very grateful for the food parcels which lasted us for quite a few months, and were such a help, as she had such little money. Thanks for stirring the good memories at a time of desperate need, a true silver lining at that time of my young life.
