D-Day

As a British National living in the U.S.A. I have to remember that if it was not for those World War 2 troops I may not have been able to. God bless you all wherever you may be.

I agree with all you say Britbabe. Without these young men who gave their lives we wouldn't have gained our freedom.

D-Day

It was a very moving day for all sorts of reasons. Well done France for laying on such a spectacular event.

I'm old enough to remember what used to be dished up for meals during those war years. Always a favourite and still is, bubble and squeak (squabble-n-beak!), which my mother made to perfection; all nice and brown at the bottom. Often served on a Monday with cold meat and baked beans.

Any similar memories?

Ration Meals

Hi Thistledo, My father landed at Juno Beach, and, luckily, came through everything. My Mother used to get a joint for Sunday lunch and we had it cold Sunday evening, and made into shepherds or cottage pie on Monday. I seem to remember eating a lot of offal, Chitterlins (pigs intestines) and tripe, as well as liver and kidneys. Lungs didn't appear on the menu - thank heavens.
We lived in town, but kept chickens in the back garden and whatever you could do with chickens and eggs my mother did.
Maybe it's my imagination, but food seemed a lot tastier then.

Kayb, my Dad also landed on Juno, so snap!

Our Mums deserved their own medals imo with what they had to serve up from very little to go on. Cottage/Shepherds pie was a frequent meal, as was bread pudding. Made one of those yesterday. Leftover bread was never thrown away; it was saved for bread puddings. Remember Mum making rice pudding - with pearl barley???!!!!
