RATIONING POINTS SYSTEM: WORLD WAR II

A list of the Points System used for rationing most essential foodstuffs during the period immediately after the war - this list notes that 'home canned fish' will no longer be rationed. Rationing continued for some years after the war as Britain adjusted to establishing food supplies and a peace-time economy. It finally ceased in 1954.From a series of albums containing newspaper and magazine clippings, assorted ephemera and a diary, kept by Mrs Lucy Awdry of 14 Franconia Road, Clapham, for the duration of World War II and recording wartime life in London. During the war Mrs Awdry volunteered with the Women's Voluntary Service (WVS) assisting with fire watch duties and also at the Clapham War Savings Centre.
