' MurIearSofWspServf0 'HE Gillette Safety Razor has passed through war service with a clean bill of health. It went into the front line with the first troops;^ illd'it 18 still on active seiprice, never having missed a day. It is the proiid record of the Gillette Razor that it has more users than have all other razors put together in every regiment under-the Allied flags. Under the severest conditions it is possible to impose, the Gillette Razor has supplied all the comfort and luxury a soldier derives from aclean shave^ It has been his companion in many a shell-hole, dug-out and wateif'Soaked trench. It has gone with him fo billet and reserve camp; it has shaved him in; liospital and has accompanied him to "Blighty". Whether its owner has been on leave, invalided home, or finally pensioned off, the Gillette has never failed lo offer the daily luxury of a perfedl shave. v ' For more than four years it has been in action-day after day; month after month,-and it has never appeared on a casu<^lty list, or been "invalided home". An occasional oversight on the part of fnen^s at home, or di6 iincertaSn^ of the mails, has sometimes deprived a soldiier of the new Gillette blades he prizes so highly. But the Gillette itself, so often mentioned in "despatches" home, has come through with flying colors,-a poWerhil factor in the maintenance of morale.
