Oh yes - the whale meat! I remember buying that from a butcher on Bond Street. It was horrible but it fed our dog sometimes (no pet foods back in those days). And rabbit meat, which we ate. And the confectioner shop on Duke Street would take sugar ration coupons for sweets which were also rationed.

With reference to whale meat. If my memory serves me right, I think this used to be known as snooks and it was horrible. As for rabbit, it is now regarded as first class meal. I have two wild rabbits in my freezer.
