take a look at this piece of paper. It's a certificate, and it states that the owner is free of both vermin and scabies. Soldiers needed these certificates before being allowed to go out of the line. Keeping clean while being stationed in the trenches could be a challenge on sometimes. Russians were so scarce the men would keep a small drop of tea in the bottom of their cups to use his water for shaving. Military rations varied, but we're likely to include corn, beef, tin meat or vegetable stew on these biscuits. They were large, big square biscuits like the dog biscuits that you see today. They were nutritious and in many cases replaced bread, which was very, very scarce. Many of the young men who enlisted came from the slums of the big cities and even those soldiers. Russians weren't particularly luxurious. Some of them would have been better fed in the army when they were at home.
