This recipe I got from a highly sought out book called We'll Eat Again A collection of recipes from the war years Selected by Marguerite Patten. I found my book on eBay but it took a while for someone to list it. They have one here if your interested in purchasing one :

3/4 lb. meat

2 carrots, sliced

1 onion or leek, if possible, sliced

3 lb potatoes, peeled and sliced

1 dessertspoon fat from the meat or dripping

1/2 pint vegetable stock

1 dessertspoon flour

pepper and salt

METHOD: Cut up meat into small pieces and place in a fireproof dish or casserole. Add sliced carrots and onion or leek, and pepper and salt. Add sliced carrots and onions or leek, and pepper and salt. Add half the potatoes. Instead of slicing potatoes crack off lumps with a knife. Place the fat from the meat or the dripping on top. Put in a moderate oven with lid on for half an hour. Take out, add stock, blend 1 dessertspoon flour in a little water, pour into casserole. Add remainder of potatoes and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook in a moderate oven. Remove the lid for the last 20 minutes and cook until the potatoes are brown.
