Before the expansion ordered by Congress in the early months of 1812, before declaring war on Britain, the United States Army was composed of eleven regiments: seven infantry, one each of riflemen and light dragoons, and two of artillery, one heavy and the other light. The companies of light artillery served as infantry as the War Department believed that horses were too expensive for peacetime. The authorized strength was 10,000 but only 6,000 men were in active service. When the expansion was ordered by Congress, they authorized ten more regiments of infantry, a second of light dragoons, and two more regiments of artillery. The authorized strength jumped to approximately 27,000 but immediately prior to the declaration of war in June, fewer than 12,000 had been commissioned or enlisted.

An Australian delicacy, Vegemite was developed during post WW1 Australia by Cyril Percy Callister in Melbourne, Victoria in 1922. Little know that the spread’s main ingredient is actually yeast mixed with vegetable and spice additives. In 1919 British Marmite imports ceased which in turn forced Callister's employer, the Australian company Fred Walker & Co., to give him the task of developing a spread from the used yeast being dumped by breweries. Callister used autolysis to break down the yeast cells from waste obtained from the Carlton & United brewery. Concentrating the clear liquid extract and blending with salt, celery and onion extracts formed a sticky black paste.
A nationwide competition with a prize of £50 was started to give a name to the new product. Two local girls from Victoria won and became known as the Vegemite girls. The product took off and in 1939 Vegemite was officially endorsed by the British Medical Association as a rich source of B vitamins. Rationed in Australia during World War II, Vegemite was included in Australian Army rations and by the late 1940s was used in nine out of ten Australian homes. It remains popular on the supermarket shelves as well in culture today. Although it has been banned in many prisons and dry countries since it can be used to brew beer.

The West awoke to the news the following day, with celebrations being held around the world for the Victory in Europe – VE Day, 8 May.
