This table was laid out to show the weekly rations for one person and the kind of meal you could create. It was really interesting to see and made me realise how much waste there is now!
I was quite surprised to find out that the sweet ration was 12 ounces a month as that seems quite a lot to me! I don't eat a quarter of sweets every week but I suppose there was less sugar in foods then.
A display of wartime toys in this house, toys were made out of everything, even spam tins were used.
I wore a skirt and blouse which were charity shop finds and a cardigan knitted from wool given to me in true wartime fashion! The cardigan is recently finished so I will share details in a separate post soon.
I really enjoyed my evening experiencing wartime and it was nice to see the museum in a different era.
