Download PDF for this date

Ottawa’s Jewish community of approximately 700 families today presented War Services Minister Thorson with a cheque for the purchase of 10 mobile kitchens to be used in the Battle of Britain.

The mobile kitchens will be given to Britain through Hon. Vincent Massey, Canadian High Commissioner in the United Kingdom, with the request that they be placed by him wherever he considers they are most needed.
