The position at Radcliffe-on-Trent, 1918

In a personal letter sent from Radcliffe-on-Trent in February 1918, we find that even at this relatively late stage in the war food rationing had not come into full effect:-

"We are not on meat ration yet & we havent got any tickets, only marg & tea tickets & we've only one of each of those for the lot of us so we can't very well send those can we?".


[Letter from Liz Flower of Mount Pleasant, Radcliffe-on-Trent, to her brother, Tom, serving in the Sherwood Foresters, 27th February, 1918 - Private Collection]
