We are often culpable, us older Police bloggers, of looking at the past through rose tinted glasses.
But, here is a tale of serious woe suffered by our forebears in the 50's.
The tea situation would be "very serious" if there was a widespread attack on Britain by both A bombs and H bombs, a team drawing up contingency plans for food supplies said.
"The tea position would be very serious with a loss of 75% of stocks and substantial delays in imports and with no system of rationing it would be wrong to consider that even 1oz per head per week could be ensured," noted one official.
"No satisfactory solution has yet been found."
Sounds like Policing today.
Anyone for a cuppa?
What would Twining say?
"Make mine black" probably!
