From Mrs L. Savcic

Sir: My sister was at prep school in Hastings during the 1960s ("The latter-day battle of Hastings", 22 May). Each day the children were given, among other restricted foods, two measured teaspoons of sugar and jam and told that that was what they would have received "if Hitler had won the war". The school has since closed, but maybe some of the depressing after-effects linger on. My sister has never been back.

Yours faithfully,


London, SW11
