Soldier enjoys home canned chicken overseas

Rfmn. W. Huff of Lindsay and pals enjoy delicacy from home

Canadian home-canned chicken for a Christmas treat in England was the unique experience of Rfmn. Wesley Huff, son of Mrs. Billings, William St. N., Lindsay.

His mother, having a number of fine chickens, decided on an experiment which proved to be entirely satisfactory so she passes on her idea in case some other mother might wish to give her own son a similar treat.

Mrs. Billings canned the chicken in glass jars, then packed them in tin cans and they arrived in first-class condition just the night before Christmas. What a delicious addition to their rations this was to Wes and his pals only they can tell!
