Eat maize and win a war

12th November 2004 at 00:00
The World War I Replica Pack contains a number of fascinating facsimile documents. Some encourage families to "Help Win the War" by eating flaked maize and barley broth, while others warn of how to behave "in the event of a Landing by the Enemy". There are also recruiting posters, a Patriotic Pledge to abstain from "all intoxicants", and a 32-page booklet on what to do when joining the ranks. Perhaps most poignant of all is a confidential medical report on a shell-shocked young 2nd Lieutenant called Wilfred Owen. The World War I Replica Pack costs pound;4.95 (pound;2.95 for larger orders) from the Memorabilia Pack Co, 16 Forth Street, Edinburgh EH1 3LH.
