Rationed Items

In the Second World War the civilian population had to cope with extensive rationing of food and clothing. Rationing was a means of ensuring the fair distribution when things were scarce.

Ration books were given to everyone in Britain who then registered in a shop of their choice. When something was purchased the shopkeeper marked the purchase off in the customer’s book.

Which one of these items was not rationed? Meat, fish, cheese, eggs, soap, chocolate, tea, sugar, cigarettes, petrol, pyjamas or socks?
