Those London schoolboys are scrambling for sweets which were not only off the ration but were being distributed free. The hand-out was at the front gates of Batger's, the confectioners, at Clapham Common, when the firm gave away a large quantity of sweets to local children to celebrate derationing. Rationing of sweets, introduced nearly eleven years ago, ended at midnight.
