An interesting advert from May 1943 for men's clothes. They were available at Co-op Menswear shops in Chatham Road, Young Street, Northgate and at the Central Stores all of which are long gone.

The advert also encourages the public to save with them for the Wings for Victory campaign. There is information for the Co-op Funeral Service in pre Strathmore House days.

Finally at the bottom of the page is a small advert which is part of the wartime waste paper campaign.Readers were given 3d (just over 1p today) for 4 pounds in weight of waste paper.
