It is interesting to see how they smoked apple slices before dehydrating and preserved fresh eggs to keep so they could use them during the winter. They also show how some of the women would be billeted with folks in the country so they could work on the farms to help keep food production going.

The video was designed to introduce the viewer to what it was like to farm in Great Britain back during WWII. This interesting video is from Tracey Northernstar.
