“Feeding and clothing excellent; only need peace and fine weather”

Florence Vansittart Neale has more news of the war, and is given an explosive souvenir:

Another aerial raid – 40 over Zeebrugge-Ostend. 4 French helped. Guarded German aerodrome. Another French despatches.

Hear Kitchener has commandeered 120,000 boats. In France by May 1st.

Received bit of German shrapnel & German high explosive from Harry Paine. Says feeding & clothing excellent. Only need peace & fine weather.
