Persuasion and Propaganda By Chloe Burchell

The Women's Land Army

Men went to war so women had to run the farms. They did every job from milking cows to driving a tractor.

Dig For Victory

People dug up their flower beds and planted vegetables instead. Parks were turned into allotments.

People were encouraged to grow their own vegetables - this was known as the Dig for Victory campaign.

Rationing

Everybody had a ration book containing coupons. The 'Black Market' was an illegal way of buying extra food.

Food was rationed and people were encouraged to share what they had.

The War on Waste

The army couldn't march on an empty stomach and on the Home Front, people did everything they could to make food go further.

People used every scrap of food and nothing went to waste
