Comfort parcel label

In March 1915, Lady Liverpool challenged the women of New Zealand to knit enough socks to provide two pairs for each member of the New Zealand Expeditionary Force. Six months later, the knitters of New Zealand had completed 30,000 pairs for dispatch overseas. A label like this accompanied these parcels, which were sent to warm both the heart and toes of the unknown recipient, as well as to wish him a safe return.
