How to patch shirts, sheets and blankets, ways of saving fuel (giving up toast helps), mending saucepans and how to look after parachute nylon... Jill Norman introduces this compilation of leaflets issued by the Board of Trade during the Second World War, when making-do and mending on the home front was an important part of the war effort. These tricks could also help survive a recession – but don't do that saucepan and flux thing. No jacket.
