This additional pamphlet to the Lux Knitting Book was a War Supplement, concerned with instructing readers on how to knit garments useful to soldiers and sailors on the front. In this guide there are instructions on how to knit helmets, sleeveless pullovers, rifle mitts and heavy duty socks,
An instruction guide on how to knit several different "field comforts" for those on the front. The guide includes how to knit scarves, socks, turtlenecks and pullovers. Nevertheless, it also teaches readers how to knit more specialized items like a ribbed balaclava helmet, gunner's and observer's half mitts, and steel helmet caps.
One only has to read their letters and diaries to see how important socks were to soldiers, and it was just as important to Canadians to be able to supply them. The fact that this knitting instruction sheet, preserved by Charlotte Halls of Winnipeg, Manitoba, is so well worn suggests that it was used frequently, and perhaps passed through many hands during the Second World War.
In successive editions of this pamphlet, it is possible to see changing understandings of what men and women in uniform needed in the way of knitted articles.
