RAF Men Help Belsen Survivors

RAF men quartered near Belsen have forgone much of their rations to help thousands of survivors of the concentration camp who are living in the barracks formerly occupied by the Panzer training school.

They have given over half a million cigarettes, 1,200 bars of chocolate, large quantities of fruit and other N.A.F.F.I. goods.

The gifts have meant a real hardship for the RAF men, many of whom are still living under canvas far from town amenities.
