Canteen meal tokens

Do you remember them and can you help us date them?

These tokens were used to purchase meals in the canteen. The earliest are made of metal and marked “Breakfast” and “Dinner”. The later ones are paper and marked 1d (1p) and 1/2d (1/2p).

If you remember these tokens can you help us add more information about them? Where were they collected from and how often were they sold? Were there higher values than 1d? If you remember using these tokens, can you help us date them? Please share your memories by clicking on Add a comment about this page below.
