Rations Ww2

Good Essays
During the outbreak of WW2, the Commonwealth Government introduced rations, or limits on resources including food and clothes for civilians in Australia, to effectively maintain supplies for troops on the front line. Rationing restricted the quantity and type of goods the Australian public could buy, as each person was given a ration book containing coupons which could be exchanged for rationed items. As a result of the strong constraints, Australians were forced to substitute basic everyday items for alternate options showing resourcefulness and persistence.
