After the start of World War Two, life changed considerably in Britain. To avoid giving the enemy visual reference points at night, full blackout curtains had to be used to keep light from escaping from windows. Vehicle lights had to be covered so that only a pinhole was left to allow light to escape. Fuel was rationed, especially gasoline. Food was rationed, especially meat and other animal products, also clothing. Young children were sent into the country from the cities to protect them from the air raids. There were shortages of all kinds of consumables, from liquor to cigarettes. New cars were unavailable, and practically everyone between the ages of 18 and 50 was in some kind of military service, unless their job was considered essential to the war effort. Childless women aged 19-30 were also subject to national service, though not in a combat role.
