  • Thought so! I've been researching this all week and didn't believe the sources I found that said potatoes were not grown until the English introduced them during the war! Thanks for that information Mark….it confirms what I thought! Also, I'm trying to find out ..without any success to date…whether powdered eggs and SPAM were brought into Malta on the convoys …I can find no evidence that they were. In terms of protein I can only find references to corned beef and canned fish, i.e. herrings and sardines plus mutton (not sure how they got that there without refrigeration either!)
