During the discussion of wartime memories, the prominence of the " Dig for
Victory" posters wasn’t mentioned. Most people with gardens grew as many
vegetables as they could manage, and some kept chickens if they had space.
Rationing was very well organised, so we knew exactly how much food we would
receive. (My mother didn’t have to scramble for food slots). I believe
fish was available off-ration, but I remember having to rush to join a queue
for kippers. Big excitement!
