More Info →‘Food For Britain’ Display

Shown here is a display put up by "The Times" newspaper asking for donations of food to help keep Britain fed in the time during and after World War Two. “Tin and a Sixpence" refers to a tin for the fundraising and sixpence for a cup of tea and the stall.Amongst items on display are tins of cheese spaghetti, Highlander Condensed Milk, Milo, Jam, Vegetable soup, Brufax and Beehive matches. New Zealand, along with other countries, was a vital source of food for Britain during World War Two. It rationed its own food supply to increase the amount that could be sent to England. The 'Food for Britain' campaign helped to explain the necessity for rationing, making the idea more palatable to the New Zealand public.
