In order to stop food prices from sky-rocketing and people from going hungry during World War Two, the British Government introduced a system of rationing. It was generally very popular, as the citizens recognised it as the fairest method of sharing out available supplies, and in the 14 years rationing was in place, Brits became cheerfully adept at ‘making do’ with what they had.
Christmas time in 1940, really was an explosive one, and on the evening of the 29th and 30th December, Luftwaffe, Germany’s powerful Air force, launched a devastating raid on London. Named the Blitz, during the raid 130 Heinkel HE111s aircraft dropped 10,000 Incendiary bombs, 300 bombs a minute, on central London causing a massive series of fires that wiped out the historical centre of London.
