General (General discussion, talk about anything.)
I was too young to appreciate rationing, I think being the youngest I was indulged. Looking back, I think there was a lot of sacrifices by parents and siblings alike. (And now we're told we're the better generation!)
But, Domin0, what reminds me is my brother worked for a butcher on Saturdays and holidays, he used to deliver orders in his basket on the bike and he was paid in meat, a joint/sausages, etc. My mother was delighted and we used to wait for my brother to come home on a Saturday night, we never knew what was coming!
