Lunch hour at Winston's place of work was in a low-ceilinged canteen, deep underground. On the tray was dumped the regulation lunch - pinkish-grey stew, a hunk of bread, a cube of cheese, a mug of milkless VICTORY COFFEE, and one saccharine tablet. Had food always tasted like this? Had it always been like this - bent spoons, dented trays, coarse white mugs; all surfaces greasy; grime in every crack; and a sourish, composite smell of bad gin and bad coffee and metallic stew and dirty clothes.
