I remember when war broke out.
I was in the garden planting carrots for the Nightfighters.
Ethel came to me and said 'Harold, War has broken out'
Never mind I said, let's put kettle on and have a nice cup of tea.  {-) {-)

My earliest recollection of the war was, as a young kid watching the semis going along Parramatta Road (Sydney), carrying planes with their wings folded.

Much later buying food with ration coupons which you swopped with neighbours.

I remember 'Black Jacks' and 'Fruit Salads' were 4 a penny (old money) and every 4th click of the chewing gum machine you got an extra one. Fish and Chips cost 1/11 and you got Sixpence for returning an empty Corona pop bottle.
Hay bales were heavy and barns where for making dens in .
