Description: Brian Windsor began working in his father's butchers shop when he was still at school. With wartime rationing things were tough. They augmented their meat quota with venison and rabbit and his father started selling fish, an encyclopaedia open on the counter to help him identify it. Later, Brian drove the van, delivering orders within a 20 mile radius, from half a pound of liver to 40 ribs of beef. And in the winter of 1947, when the world froze and the roads were impassable, he walked to Withypool for three weeks dragging a sledge.
