Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Home Front - Memorabilia Pack (Kitchen & Home)
I'd been considering buying one of the replica packs for some time for the benefit of my niece and nephew (both of whom are in primary school) but had umm-ed and ahh-ed about the percieved quantity and quality. I finally decided to order this particular pack thinking that even if it wasn't what I hoped it would be for home use, I'd at least be able to gift it to their school.

I was a little disappointed in the size of the package - around the size of an A5 piece of paper - but I was impressed with the variety of papers included. I wish I'd been able to read a full list of what was included before buying it as I wouldn't have hesitated so long! For the benefit of people wishing to know the exact contents, I'll list them here:

~Simple Household Repairs leaflet (useful even today)
~Your Children's Food in Wartime leaflet
~War Emergency leaflet detailing evacuation, lighting restrictions, etc.
~War on Disease leaflet
~Chart of War Gases fold-out leaflet
~War-Time Cookery booklet (A6 size but easily readable with 12 pages of recipes)
~Fuel Saving in the Kitchen leaflet
~Dig for Victory leaflet detailing a time plan for sowing seeds
~Dig for Victory poster "postcard" with info about emergency rations on the back
~Receipt for railings taken from a church
~Military Food Ration Book (this replaces the advertised clothes ration book)
~Save it for Salvage bookmark
~3 bus tickets
~12 cigarette cards

I also ordered the child's ration book and so found out that the inner pages of that are the same as the food ration book in this pack. Just a heads up.

I am overall quite pleased with the replica pack and I intend to buy the Children at War, The Blitz and the Women's War ones to give my niece and nephew a fuller glimpse through documents of the Home Front during WW2.
