daily food is bully beef. Everyone is given some rum to start the day off which is rather uplifting for most of the soldiers. Smoking is allowed in the daytime which takes away the taste of bully beef. Tea is freely available but the trouble is that it often freezes in your cup as it is so cold in the trench. A total of 3,240,948 tons of food was sent from britan to those who were fighting in the trenches.
