Today’s Tidbit | WWII Ration Book

This is my grandma’s War Ration Book No 3.

Four different series of war ration books were issued. “Book No. 3″ series books were issued in October of 1943. Each ration stamp has a  drawing of an airplane, gun, tank, aircraft carrier, ear of wheat, or fruit, etc. and a serial number. My book is missing a couple of pages and only contains stamps with the airplane, aircraft carrier, tank and artillery. Rationing ended in 1946.
