Make do and mend...

During these days of rising costs and the so-called credit crunch there's a growing trend to "make do and mend".

Our website Propaganda: a weapon of war has lots of information on these publications.

Kids of today would have a problem relating to the typical menu as shown, "but it did me no harm"!!!
