Britain's Food Supplies [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser — 26 January 1940

Britain's Food Supplies Britain's command of the seas is reflected in a survey of food supplies and prices made in Britain in the fifth month of the war. Butter has been rationed and there are restrictin-'s on meat, but supplies of most other foodstuffs are plentiful. More re markable still is the fact that the prices of most of these foodstuffs have not advanced materially. In fact, some pricets are lower thAr they were before the war.

Head Office: 4S1 High St., Northcote. JW1046. Private: "KOORINGORAMA," YORK STREET, ELTHAM. Phone: Eltham 22 FRIDAY, JANUARY 26, 1940 SECOND A.I.F. MARCH Cheering thousands lined Mel bourne streets under an overcast sky to witness the march of 5,000 mem bers of the Second A.I.F. The troops marched in their new formation of threes, headed by their own bands. Even they never dreamt of the re ception that would be given them by their fellow citizens. They were made to realise as never before that the community appreci ated their courage and their loyalty to Australia and the Empire. These men, straight-backed, muscular Aus tralians, are drawn from all classes. Many of them have given up good jobs because they felt that the Allies cause is just.

U-BOAT TRAINING [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser — 26 January 1940

U-BOAT TRAINING Claims by the Nazis for their 'ate of submarine building are ridiculed by naval experts. But a great prob lem that the 'Iazis must face is that of providing -trained crews for thieir U-boats. With treme(ndous effort, Germany may put into service 80 sub marines in the current year. No fewer than.3,000 trained officers and men will be needed to man these craft, and betwen six and nine years' experience is neeuu to equip of ficers and senior petty officers and the crews. One estimate places the number of lives lost among crews of German submarines at more than 1,000 since the war began.
