Only five more packed lunches to go

The Guardian

By Ian Sansom

Sandwiches, for me as a child, consisted mostly of sliced, white bread with margarine and fish paste, or maybe sandwich spread or corned beef or sometimes, on a Sunday, a pilchard or beetroot or egg (sliced, and without mayonnaise, which was something we had heard of but never seen, and that was possibly medicinal). For a treat, my dad would sometimes make us sugar sandwiches or, if we were really lucky, a condensed-milk sandwich - which was something to do with the war, I think.
