Bringing Home a Bit Less Bacon –

Ration Book

Ration Book

On January 8th 1940, rationing was re-introduced to war-torn Great Britain.

Bacon, butter and sugar were initially rationed following the outbreak of World War II in September of the previous year. However, meat, tea, biscuits, jam, cereals, fruit, eggs, lard and milk were amongst a wealth of other items added to the list before rationing was gradually lifted.

Items were removed gradually from rationing, starting after the war in 1945. Eventually, rationing disappeared completely in 1950.
