A Conversation for World War Two Rationing in Britain
Dig for Victory!

I've seen lots of reproductions of posters featuring a booted foot pushing down on a spade, above the slogan "Dig for Victory!". I presume that was to do with saving rations. There are also Giles cartoons of a cabbage patch on top of an Anderson shelter, which I hear was quite common.
(Input from anyone who knows better is encouraged. I didn't do the actual war in my history GCSE, only the causes and consequences...)
