Rationing Begins !


Recommended Posts

As you settle down to enjoy the new year celebrations just spare a thought for this day in 1939.


Since the declaration of war in September '39 over 746,000 Tons of shipping had been lost to the U-Boat war by this date in Dec 1939.


This was the first full day of meat rationing in the UK. Bacon, butter and suger was soon to follow, on 8th January 1940.


Britain was at war.
