Chocolates for gas protection

Aldermaston schoolchildren were unexpectedly rewarded with sweet treats for helping out the local regiment.

Major Egginton (3/4 Royal Berks) called to than Miss Adams and the girls for their kindness in sewing on the anti-gas pockets for the regiment, and to show their appreciation, a large box of chocolates was presented to the children.
