I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Food. Sort of.

In case you weren't already full of admiration and sympathy for the men who stuck it out for months at a time here, the pantries seemed to consist mostly of oatmeal and mayonnaise (and that 60 year old mayonnaise must be practically a biological weapon by now.)

These two shelves are like the Greatest Hits of British mid-century cuisine -- coffee, tea, brown sauce, Horlicks (the English version of Ovaltine), custard powder, and piccalilli. Plus canned cheese, which I never saw before and hope never to see again.
