Application for the replacement of lost or destroyed clothing coupons should at present be made direct to the Board of Trade. On and after 21st September, application forms will be available at any Money Order Post Office, Citizen's Advice Bureau or Women's Voluntary Service Centre. Replacement of coupons imposes, in most cases, an additional strain on the limited clothing supplies available. Coupons will only be replaced, therefore, where loss is due to causes outside the owner's control, such as enemy action or burglary, or where exceptional need for clothing is proved.
