Horse meat not an issue during the war years

I SEE that Princess Anne is urging us all to consider eating horse meat.

Well, during the Second World War, we ate whatever we could get – horse meat or whale meat – and a couple of times we may have suspected that a meal described as, say, 'rabbit meat' could have been something else.

However, as long as it was tasty (and horse meat was tasty) we enjoyed it.
