War rationing - carrots on a stick war rationing was just a
way of life during World War Two in the UK. One of the luxuries
to hit the rationing list was sugar and with no sugar, there was no ice cream.
But the official wartime substitute for ice-cream was a carrot on a stick.
Many British children born just before the war didn’t discover
what ice-cream actually was until the war was over and
the rationing stopped. The photos are from 1941
