    Background: Battered Kuo Ling Tao, Quemoy's district most badly damaged by Communist shells, was at the receiving end of something more palatable than shells recently - relief goods sent from Formosa.

    Villagers lined up to receive milk powder, flour and clothing. The goods had been collected by social and civil organisations on Formosa.

    According to the villagers, the supplies had arrived just in time to help them face not only enemy no. 1, the Communist shells, but also enemy no. 2, the increasing winter cold.
