Saturday 4th January 1941: meat rationing

(Air raid warning) Also from 12.22 a.m. to 4.2 a.m.: four machines came and went: I think some bombs were dropped south-east of here. Severe frost continues, not so dull, but cruel wind is still east. Great difficulty in getting food for the cats. All offals will not be restricted and rationed, so no more liver, lights and oxheart for pussy. And only 1/6 (one shilling and sixpence?) worth of meat per head per week for human beings, which means about 3/4lb for the week. Played the gramophone with the R&A moving coil speaker installed. Distant warning from 10.45 to 11.23 p.m.
