Currently on Yesderday channel is "Edwardian supersize me". Slightly pre-war but upper middle class and upper class would by the looks of it eat a lot.
So coming back to DORA. Is the control of eating out seen to be "clamping down"? With my reference to rabbits earlier. I think Socio-economic groups in town and country would be diffrent at the time? Low paid farm worker would be able to obtain meat(be it rabbit, duck or other) compared to a inner city worker?
Out of intrest, what did officers have sent to them in hampers from Fortnum and Mason?
Some had a special box of Cocaine, Heroin and Opium (and a hypodermic) in a Fortnum and Mason's gift wrapping (I kid you not) - this was legal then (but made illegal mid war)
