But there’s one thing more that Tommy would be very grateful for, and that is a clean face-towel. Probably he lost his only one weeks ago, and when a rare occasion enables him to revel in a wash, he’d find it a far more luxurious affair if he had a nice clean towel to dry on.
Remember this when you are doing up a parcel for “the Front”. It’s a good idea, too, to tuck a cake of nice scented soap into some corner.
You have to be without soap and water for a time to realise what a treat it is to be clean once more – and Tommy is a cleanly person!
