Children's VE Day celebration, Hampstead

Description:
Celebrations for the end of World War II were somewhat hampered by the continued rationing of food. This article highlights the importance of working together, demonstrated by mothers pooling their rations together for a celebratory cake big enough for all their children. The article also carefully lists all the sweet rations given the children, undoubtedly the real highlight of the day for them.
