Fascinating read.

Post by Maywalk on Fri Apr 04, 2014 12:47 pm

Many thanks all you lovely folk for this section and all the memories written here.
I have been perusing the posts for the past hour and its made fascinating reading as well as having a few smiles along the way and seeing SO many super photos plus reading about Joelle's big day when singing about the bananas.  Very Happy 
If I have not answered any postings in the past it would most probably be because I had either had a seizure or I have been shattered looking after hubby.
NO I am not looking for sympathy but I just wanted to explain my absences.
Anyway I was reading Tans posting about the ration books and I thought this would explain it better than myself.
Very interesting read and scroll down the page for a lot more information.
I will call back whenever I can and God Bless You All.

Thank you our Maisie that was a very interesting read. My mum's family moved from Britain to Canada just before World War 2 and she often told me about rationing here in Canada. For the life of me I can't really imagine what that would be like, because all my life nothing has been rationed here, I can go out and buy what I like all the time.  chuckles

That really was a fascinating read!

For instance, I had no idea that even soap was rationed - yipes!  It makes sense but soap and toothpaste are vital necessities in life - grin!

My relative were lucky during the rationing here ... they all had massive farms on the Prairies so food (including meat, etc) was never a problem and according to my Grandmother's journal, they sent 'care' packages to family in Britain regularly.  (Hmm, wonder if they included soap?!)

I remember my ration book, just and soap was not a priority for me.
