Home Sweet Home Front - DIG FOR VICTORY

DIG! DIG! For Victory The Ministry of Agriculture launched one month on from the outbreak of the Second World War, one of the most memorable slogans of the whole conflict - 'Dig for Victory'. From this point on, the whole of Britain's home front were encouraged to transform their private gardens into mini-allotments. By 1943, over a million tons of vegetables were being grown in gardens and allotments. During the course of the war, many propagandist moves were made to promote the importance of 'growing your own'. “Dig! Keep on pushing the spade Don’t mind the worms Just ignore their squirms And when your back aches laugh with glee And keep on diggin’ Till we give our foes a Wiggin’ Dig! Carrots were one vegetable in plentiful supply and as a result widely utilised as a substitute for the more scarce commodities. Similarly to the 'Doctor Carrot' character, but this time using potatoes, 'Potato Pete' was another character introduced to encourage the population to eat home grown vegetables.

They wanted to take revenge for Germany’s defeat in the Great War by expanding Germany’s empire. In 1938, the Nazis invaded Austria and on 15th March 1939 they invaded Czechoslovakia. Next, on 1st September 1939, over a million Nazi troops then invaded Poland. The UK and France had promised to help the Poles if they were attacked so gave Hitler an ultimatum (final demand) by threatening war if his troops did not withdraw by 3rd September. Hitler ignored this threat and so war was declared. Most families in the UK heard the news on the radio, announced by the Prime Minister, Neville Chamberlain at 11:15am.

World War II Photos

Cropped from Select List number 150. The Second World War was documented on a huge scale by thousands of photographers and artists who created millions of pictures. American military photographers representing all of the armed services covered the battlefronts around the world. Every activity of the war was depicted--training, combat, support services, and much more. On the home front, the many federal war agencies produced and collected pictures, posters, and cartoons on such subjects as war production, rationing, and civilian relocation. The pictures described in this list are from the holdings of the Still Picture Branch (NNSP) of the National Archives and Records Administration. Pictures are listed by subject and campaign. At the end of this leaflet there are instructions for ordering complete sets of slides from this and other Select Audiovisual Records lists.
