I remember Nick Gallienne coming past the window and my mother hiding an illegal piece of beef that we were eating in the cupboard. Nick Gallienne said — there’s no need to hide it — in other words he could smell it! ….. I remember being hungry once and asking my mother for another piece of bread and I saw her cry, because if I had had another piece I would have been eating tomorrow’s ration.
I still see wartime eating habits in myself now, I’m careful with butter, cheese, meat, and always eat everything on my plate.
