Question asked “What do you remember about bread or bread baking”.

I remember when I was 4 or 5 going to the bakers with my mum to get bread.  They sold it fresh in a brown paper bag.  As children we would have tea and that would be jam and bread.

My father was in the army and we would have to move to different countries.  Sometimes we would have the local bread but mostly bread was from the NAFFI, they got it shipped or from a local supplier.
