A cook at the Chaim Weizmann Home at Tapley Park, Instow, Devon, cuts oranges for the children. Oranges were scarce during the Second World War and priority for this fruit was given to children over adults. When oranges weren't available, orange juice and blackcurrant puree provided an alternative source of vitamin C.
