Noele Ashley's insight:

Soldiers didn't have much food or money to survive in during war time, so the lead to rationing. Rationing was introduced in 1944, which brought ration stamps , used to buy food, and other retail. People had to ration by eating less, and by decreasing the usage for suppiles. Rationing gave everyone a fair share of resources.
