New Zealand Medical Services in Middle East and Italy
Contracts were let for the purchase of kitchen scraps and fats. Bins with lids were provided at each mess for their collection. One drum was used for meat scraps but not bacon (because of the Moslem ban), and one was used for dry bread. A tin was also provided for fat. The bins were emptied three times a day and cleanliness insisted on. The money obtained was utilised to purchase extras for the men's mess.
