As a civilian, you received a book of ration STAMPS from the War Rationing Board. When you purchased an item from a merchant that was rationed, you need money AND ration stamps for that item. This included food- which you bought from the grocer or butcher.

Why did Liverpool get evacuated?

Liverpool was evacuated during WW2 because Liverpool has one of the main ports in the entire UK and so was targeted. The Germans wanted to stop the food and drink and other necessary items from getting to the people, by taking out Liverpool with the bombs they stopped the supply of food etc. Most of the children were evacuated to Wales while many stayed and endured the air raids. That is why for many years people lived on rations.

Which cigarette brands were used by GI's in the Vietnam war?

All brands of cigarettes were available in Vietnam although, for some reason, menthol brands were sometimes in short supply. In the early part of the war C rations left over from WW2 were distributed to the troops. Included with the C rations was a package that would contain a variety of items, including cigarettes. I remember smoking Lucky Strikes that were manufactured before I was born. The familiar red circle was wartime green - I believe because the red dye was needed for other wartime uses.
