Drawing The Parcel (#3) by Linda Finn

The Parcel (#3)

Parcels meant a lot to those serving overseas during both wars. Sometimes wrapped in paper, sometimes wrapped in muslin and tied up in string, they were gifts of love. Food, clothing, and personal items were sent by those at home, and the most popular gift was a box of chocolates.
