Abstract

During World War I, the British sent many care packages — including the famous "Prince Mary Christmas gift" tins — to those serving in the war. But sending such things to spies and other secret agents would have been too risky. This paper suggests an alternative means of sending good wishes that the British might have employed for those in secretive service.
