OK some of the products were stockings, shoes, food ( eggs,sugar,coffee,meats)and gas. That's about all i know

In Great Britain everything was rationed because the Germans had so imperiled trans-Atlantic shipping and obviously for the war effort. By the Way stocking were rationed because the silk was used as bags for holding propellant for field artillery shells. The silk cut down on sparks which would cause propellant to blow up. Shoes were rationed due to the obvious need for shoe leather for military boots and shoes.
