The British Meals!
Learn what the food limit in Britain was and more about the food! Rationing is when everyone has a cetrtain amount of somethiung, in this case, meals.
What is Rationing?
Yesterday, January 8th, 1940, the craziest thing happened! Rationing had begun in Britain, meaning all of the British had a food limit to a certain amount of food. This had to begin due to the fact that the British were low on food supplies because of the bombing so everyone had a restriction on the amount of food they receive. Rationing is when someone gets a certain amount of something, in this case this was food.
How did it help?
Rationing helped keep the food supply stable although some people were not happy about the fact that rationing was introduced to Britain. Rationing could also be bypassed in many different ways which will be talked about later on in this newspaper. Everyone was given a ration book which could be read, this was for people who didn't know the restriction limit or forgot about the limit that was introduced to Britain to all of the people. The rationing book had a huge limit which seemed to upset a lot of the British citizens. Rationing was bypassed in several different ways such as one which was referred to as "Digging for victory," this is when people farm their own food to get more food during rationing which was a huge advantage to farmers and was very popular in farms. Rationing was overall an amazing idea since the country could save up food and have enough food to feed everyone. As well as people digging for victory, they also kept some animals, such as pigs and cows, in order to kill them at one point and eat them. Everyone had different opinions about rationing. Both negative and positive. This is for a variety of reasons such as the fact that some people may not think it was enough and still remain hungry. Others having positive feelings about rationing as they are Digging for victory; planting crops and eating pigs, cows, sheep, etc. This means they are getting tons of food and eating all of it. Some people had positive and negative opinions regarding rationing. Since everyone did get a little bit of food but it was not necessarily enough for some people. But for others, it was enough. Examples of amounts of food people received during rationing was 4 oz of Bacon & Ham, 2 oz of milk and more.
Day to Day living in wartime
Read about how the British lived during World War II
The General lives of the British had started in 1939, when World War II started. The reason that the daily lives had to change was because there was bombing and they could not have lived normally with bombing, so restrictions had to be put into place.
When did World War II start?
World War II had started in 1939, everyone was extremely scared about it and had to be restricted to certain things. The Daily lives in Britain affected people depending on their specific genders and that kind of information. Women were treated differently to men and men were treated differently to women. The General Lives were very hard and people didn't really support it.
In World War II, women were treated much differently to men and had a complete different role from men in most of the World War II. At the start of World War II, women would normally sit at home and look after the crops and the farm. Later on in World War II, though, women were then assigned minor tasks in World War II such as being a factory worker because after a while, the government noticed that it would not be possible to keep the war, factories and other industries running. Women then got different jobs such as driving buses, operating anti-aircraft guns, raising barrage balloons, driving ambulances, or delivering aircraft from factories to frontline squadrons.
Many people had to evacuate at random times because of
problems happening such as bombing so towns and cities from small to
large had to move away from their family members and friends. Those
who stayed, though, had to deal with horrible bomb raids and maybe even
ending up getting homeless. However, everyone had to deal with threats
of gas attacks, air raids, rationing, changes at school and their daily
life in general which is very difficult to deal with sometimes.
Militarism was an issue which plagued Europe and the world in the 1930s. In Japan, Germany and Italy, militarism was very popular and dominated the governments.
The League of Nations was an international organization that aimed to make the world more peaceful. Already in spring 1915 the name “League of Nations” was in general use among the small groups ,which were discussing the future organization of peace.
The Blitz Bombing
This was a very drmatic time from day raids to night raids, read on!
In 1940 until 1941, a new thing called bombing was introduced as well as the war economy and other things regarding the economy. Mainly the Germans attacked Britain by bombing them at random times normally in the night. This began because of Adolf Hitler and this was reported in London, Britain. This bombing was called The Blitz.
Price of World War II
Why did air raids start?
The British Propaganda!
Learn about false information!
In 1941 until 1945, propaganda had to start because of a lot of people and this was used in some countries such as Britain, Germany and more. These are just some main examples of areas they used this in. Propaganda was mainly used to lie such as showing Hitler as an amazing person.
What is Propaganda?
A propaganda is a way of spreading your or other people's ideas and influencing people. This was very popular in World War II since the Allies and Axis power used propaganda to shape the publics opinion. It was also used to raise the happiness or morale of other people and to make the enemy side that they are fighting more brutal than them.
Adolf Hitler used posters of propaganda to show that he is surrounded by adoring people to make him seem like a great leader whilst he was very brutal, evil, and racist. On top of that, propaganda was also used to make the morale of the people on the opposing side smaller and get them to lose the war meaning you or the opposing side would have won.
Propaganda is a very important part in World War II (WWII) because it let people share their opinions and help out with the war.
