What a morale boost they were

James Christie and family
Everything was rationed at the time, food, fuel, clothes, and even after the war rationing continued. I was eight or nine years old before I knew what a banana tasted like.

I remember the CARE food parcels arriving, perhaps two a year. We appreciated them very much. What a morale boost they were.

It is interesting that you are called CARE because it is precisely the fact that somebody cared so much about us, to send these gifts, which was the heart-warming thing about them.
