|It was the rationing of meat which concerned wartime civilians most.|
Groups of neighbours formed Pig Clubs which jointly owned and reared a few pigs.Any kitchen waste which could be saved or collected was fed to the pigs.
This ARP sergeant from Wandsworth South London is plainly fulfilling his duties as a pig club member.
When the pigs were ready to butcher, the club members had a share of the pork or bacon produced.
From a private wartime negative.
