Petrol Coupons and Fuel Rations

Artefacts from the 1940s - Peacehaven

By M Ashley

These photos are all of petrol coupons and rationing books from the time when many resources were rationed during the Second World War.

Despite the scarcity of petrol during the war, it being needed for the war effort, many participants of WRVS Heritage Plus activities still have old coupons which they had not claimed at the time and which can now go into reminiscence boxes for all to share.
