Subject: RE: Folklore: Songs, poems etc about ploughmen/boys
About ploughman's/farm labourers food, in 1968 I worked with a old guy who had worked on the land, the family farm, I think had been split between brothers, therefore he was working in industry. His dinner every day was a hunk of cheese half a large onion plus an apple all washed down with a bottle of cold tea. He used his work knife to cut off portions.
