    National Milk was a government Scheme to ensure the supply of milk for mothers and babies when foodstuffs were rationed during WW2.
    The contents of the tin were sufficient to make seven pints of reconstituted milk.

      This is really a neat item. I still remember my Mother buying Carnation brand powdered milk in the 1960's and 1970's. I'm not even sure if Carnation produces that anymore.

      Thansks jscotto. I haven't seen carnation powdered milk. They still make the condensed stuff though.

      Stuff - I didn't think it sounded very nice.
