“Plenty of beer – more than I’ve had since the War started”

Shortages were a thing of the past.

14th November 1919

Wages 2£.16S.9d. which D- got for me to save me going down at dinner time. I went to bed as soon as I had had my breakfast; got up at 6 and then to the Drill Hall from 7 to 10 serving out beer to the returned soldiers and sailors again. Plenty of beer there, in fact one barrel was not tapped. I had more than I’ve had since the War started. To work at 10.
