New ideas nay emanate from any
one within the organisation. Col.

many times enlisted men, ineludiog
privates, who are doing minute de

that improve the efficiency of the
entire unit and thus contribute ma

A stop in this direction has
been taken by the switch from ^rr-
ioon to field rations in all poot

eoffoo, tea, sugar and cocoa, ^oh
must bo li^rtod throu^ depleted
and diverted shipping facilities.
Growing demands for food and more
food for st^pment overseas also wore
o contributing factor.
But Air Force Trainees who th
ink of tho field ration in torao of
hard-taek and boAly beef are wrong.
In fact they will have to be sharp
to note any change in the quantity
quality of food served them*
