Ration Books in 1953.

Shopping with ration books.

By Barbara Dennis.

Ration Book 1948-49
Susan Waller

Days of rationing and nowhere here to buy them so a list plus ration books were left on the step for the (daily) delivery.  In due course sparse rations were delivered plus life-line ration book.  Bills were paid with a trek to Brazier Farm to pay.  Then came the new shops in South Oxhey and we deserted Braziers (cheaper).

An old man went round delivering a crazy document about alien landing and the world was ending (it didn’t).
