This is the original Gouache painting by Patrick Nicolle.

On the right is the weekly ration of food on which each Briton went to war. Foreign food like bananas vanished from the shops.

Children grew up without having seen them and, when, offered a banana by a sailor home from overseas, often refused them because they did not know what they were (left).
