Betty Alexander

Interviewed by Brian Leckey on 6 February 1992

Betty Alexander. …the war had finished. During that time, you got mixed up with charities. You were always doing something for somebody, but it was a very awful time actually, because – well then I got a temporary job at the Zoo, because I had to come back nearer to home. That had an interesting aspect. I had to write the certificates and post them out for the giraffe that had to have tea rations. You wouldn’t believe it, but the animals there – the orangutans had to have a rice ration, and they all had to have their little certificate things to get their rations.
