    Pyongyang, March 21 (KCNA) -- Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army Kim Jong Il, general secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea and chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK, inspected a women's sub-unit of KPA Unit 824. He acquainted himself with the sub-unit's performance of duty. He took deep care of its servicepersons' service and living, going round an education room, a bedroom, a mess hall, a non-staple food store, a wash-cum-bath house and other educational entertainment and supply service facilities.
    He highly praised the achievements made by the commanding officers and women of the sub-unit in the past, saying they are managing the sub-unit well by learning from the traits and lifestyle of the anti-Japanese war heroes.
    He said that all the women soldiers are admirable revolutionaries and patriots as they are displaying matchless devotion in the performance of their sacred mission to defend the country, expressing satisfaction over the fact that the servicepersons of the sub-unit are not only distinguishing themselves in carrying out their military duty but managing their economic life assiduously.
    After seeing a variety of materials for education and means of cultural recreation in the education room, he was pleased to learn that servicepersons were provided with all conditions for fully enjoying a cultural and emotional life and praised the commanding officers for having paid deep attention to their living.
    The warm comradeship for the soldiers is one of the noble traits of the commanding officers of our revolutionary army, he said, noting that all the commanding officers should take deep care of the soldiers' living down to all details with paternal love. It is good for the sub-unit to make thorough-going preparations for sideline farming with the firm determination to make spectacular success in it this year, too, he said, underscoring the need to direct big efforts to the supply service to provide better living conditions to the servicepersons.
    He had a photo session with the servicepersons of the sub-unit. He was accompanied by Vice Department Director of the WPK Central Committee Hwang Pyong So.
