May 25: The Home Front. Think about the clothing, shoe, and hair styles of the war days. How did they change from before the war to after the war? Do you have photographs or stories in your family about how this aspect of their lives changed? #militarymemories
During the war, rationing went into effect and not only food and gasoline were in shorter supply but also materials to produce clothing and shoes. What stories are in your family about these shortages? How did they cope? How did they repair these items to get as much use as possible from them?
