8 April (1949) Cardigan butchers selling horse meat?!

  • 8 1949 (Fri.) Letter in the Tivy-side by ‘Interested of Newport, Pembs.’

‘Horse flesh in shops’

‘Many would like the Revd Ben Owen to explain more fully his statement in last week’s issue that prime Cardigan beef and mutton are sent to London and frozen Argentine meat and horse flesh are sent to Cardigan.

Are we to understand that Cardigan butchers have supplied horse flesh to regular customers as rationed meat?’
