NAAFI activities about May54 - Dave Lewington buys a cuppa.   The NAAFI girls are Barbara and Lizabeth but the main point of including this picture is to show the price list for food (all in UK currency).   The most popular meal by far was egg, double chips and beans at 1s 4d (6.5p and £1.35 at today's values).

Here is the menu price list compared at today's values:
