Armlets Give You Safety: Flashing torches in the street, it was emphasised yesterday

Armlets Give You Safety: Flashing torches in the street, it was emphasised yesterday, is banned under black out regulations.
Many pedestrians are wearing white armlets which can be picked out in the dark.
For the same purpose, the Men's Wear Council suggests the men wear lighter clothes.
The wearing of armlets has arisen from the new motoring regulation under which the edges of running boards and bumpers or wing tips must be painted white.
One woman who tried the white arm-band experiment last night told the Daily Mirror: "People stared at me through the dark, so I knew at once that I could be seen and that the experiment was successful. When I crossed the road at pedestrian crossings oncoming cars pulled up at once. "The night before, when I wasn't wearing the bands, I had to jump out of the way every time I crossed the road."

Before the Second World War started Britain imported about 55 million tons of food a year

Before the Second World War started Britain imported about 55 million tons of food a year from other countries. After war was declared in September 1939, the British government had to cut down on the amount of food it brought in from abroad as German submarines started attacking British supply ships. There was a worry that this would lead to shortages of food supplies in the shops so the British government decided to introduce a system of rationing.
Rationing made sure that people got an equal amount of food every week. The government was worried that as food became scarcer, prices would rise and poorer people might not be able to afford to eat. There was also a danger that some people might hoard food, leaving none for others.
