|Our school had all the grub delivered in flat tin trays and most of it was foul, bearing in mind during the late 40s every kid was hungry, but we were not that hungry. The Head dinner lady was Mrs. Laird and between her and the Nuns who stood over us it was like the Gestapo. I think if Germany had won the war these females would have fitted very well into their system.|
By ducking and diving, some days i was able to go to the local shops, a large Bloomer loaf 2d. and 1d. chips was Heaven. Because my Mother was a widow my Brother and I got school dinners free but A. Dinners were chronic and B. You had to queue up in a separate line with the green dinner tickets
which was highly embarrasing in front of the other kids. So whenever we could we would stay clear of the "Dining room" ( used later for some lessons still with the smell of cabbage. Ugh.
