Vintage Weekly: War Ration Books

 Important message at the bottom
of my dad's 4th war ration book:
"When you used your ration,
salvage the Tin Cans and Waste Fats.
They are needed to make munitions for our 
fighting men.  
Cooperate with your local Salvage Committee."
Having discovered several war ration books 
belonging to my parents and even me, 
I was able to trace place where we lived when I was a baby.

That's a fascinating slice of history. My father remembers rationing during (and after) the war.

My mom said she learned to drink coffee black since both sugar and cream were rationed.
