What is this?

Postby Cracker » Sun Oct 24, 2010 10:54 pm

WW II era?

Discription:

It's sent to Germany, but never opened..

The price is a bit.. well... :shock:
Sure, someone may one day kill me with my own gun.
But they'll have to beat me to death with it because it's empty.

A computer once beat me at chess, but it was no match for me at kick boxing.

Ok, not interesting then. Unthough the civil like case, I thought it might be military issue. :oops:

The address label says it WAS a care package, from a Minister (Priest) in Washington, DC to another in Germany.
Cooking oil/lard was probably in very short supply after the war! (Along with everything else)
For the Germans on this site, (or all Euros), when did post war rationing end?
I think it was 1954 for England.

I think thats really interesting! A little snapshot of history that parcel.

In the UK most things were coming off ration by item. Lots of them came off according to year often groups of items would be de- rationed in the same month, announced in groups by the Ministry of Food.

bacon july 54
ham oct 52
meat july 54
butter may 54
margarine may 54
cooking fat may 54
cheese may 54
sugar sept 53
sweets feb 53
chocolate feb 53
preserves dec 48
tea oct 52
bread july 48 - Bread was never rationed during the war but it was from 46-48. People HATED that.
