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.

Why were ration books needed?

I feel that ration books were used so that the products in the ration shops could be distributed equally among the people in the area of the ration shop.The ration books were needed to keep a record that every household would get an equal amount of the commodity, from rice to cooking oil. In India the ration cards system which people have from a particular ration shop in the area still exists. People get about one kilogram of sugar on each card from each household.Kerosene oil and rice is still sold on the ration card in many areas of Calcutta, in India.Four people in a household would have four ratio cards, one for each member of the household, in India.
