Today I was unable to stick to the regulations for 1944.
We had a pub lunch with my brother-in-law and his wife. Under 1944 regulations the cost of a three course meal should not cost more than five shillings, or about twelve pounds today. The carvery roast dinner was £11.95, which fell within my budget, but I did not wish to appear rude, so an ice cream dessert followed for a further £5.95.
Trying to find a hostelry that will give three courses for twelve pounds at weekends is pretty much impossible.
But the main course was enormous and delicious. Thank you to “The Angel”, Woolhampton. And tomorrow it’s back to the proper rations.
