Pig Clubs – Discovering WW2 Propaganda https://caitlinmary98.wordpress.com/2015/08/26/pig-clubs/

As a result of this, there was a nationwide cull of farm animals, with only limited animals being kept. Pigs, not providing milk, wool or eggs, we’re not seen as priority, and so there was a 50% drop in the number of pigs farmed in the UK. The government encouraged neighbourhoods to form their own pig clubs, in order to supplement people’s meat ration as well as to keep meat in the national system. Local communities would come together, donating their kitchen and garden waste to make pig swill to feed a pig which they had clubbed together to buy. When the pig was slaughtered, the pig club members were allowed to keep half of it to share amongst themselves, and the other half would go into the rationing system and was available to be bought by anyone.

А кто еще помнит аналогичные советские таблички (или трафареты?) со свиньей?

No person shall feed garbage to swine without first obtaining a license from the director!
