Apparently "Once Bitten Twice Shy" and the other three flat owners he knows of, are the type who prattle about our gallant servicemen, ! but are not willing to lend a helping hand. Why place every person who is wanting accommodation in the same category as his former tenants. He was very unlucky with them, but we are not all the same. We have been occupying the same rooms for the past five years and have made them better, not worse, since occupying them. I now know the reason why all the applications I have written for the tenancy of houses and flats advertised have not been answered. Servicemen and their wives are nut wanted. What gratitude after four or more years sacrifice ! "Once Bitten" talks about his hideous experience. He should come and share ours sometime when it seems as if the whole household has gone crazy. These conditions are what my husband has to come home to after over four years' overseas, in spite of all my efforts to obtain other accommodation. BITTER.
