Nothing new in Pinner:
HORSEFLESH FOR SALE

Immediately the place was opened the Pinner Association sent a vigorous protest to the local Food Control Committee.
Extract from the June 1942 Villager (issue 15)
Horseflesh for sale. Regarding the paragraph in our last issue dealing with this matter, we have been informed that the premises at 120 Marsh Road were scrupulously clean, and that the meat was passed by the proper authority.
