The German Office of Civil Protection has advised citizens to stock up on essentials, the Czech Govt has now also advised their people to put away provisions for several days. Do they know something we dont?

German advised list.
28 litres (6.2 gallons) of drinking water
4.9kg (10.8 pounds) of bread, noodles, rice, potatoes
5.6kg (12.3 pounds) of vegetables and pulses (preferably pre-cooked)
3.6kg (eight pounds) of fruit and nuts (in jars or tins)

That reminds me of a couple of tins my grandmother had in her cupboard. They had no labels on and were from 'the blitz' which she kept 'just in case ...'. They never did get opened - just thrown in the bin after she passed away.

I certainly did, Jagz, but unfortunately the adults decided that they would probably be rotten and smelly so they wouldn't let me. I was only 12 at the time.

Although it was against the law ( hoarding WW11) my granny hoarded and continued to do so until she died in the 1980s! Talk about being prepared. Invasion Penilee!
