Nah, it was sterilised.

They homogenise milk today, that's why you don't get cream on the top.

 Milk is made up of lots of globules of fat suspended in water. They are big enough that over several days they will float up to the top of the milk and separate from most of the liquid.

Homogenisation involves squirting the milk through very small holes; this breaks up the fat globules so that they become so small that thermal vibrations and currents in the milk are large enough to keep the fat mixed; this means that in future it won't re-separate.

What was that horrid milk called which came with a metal top on, it was around, at about the time camp coffee was popular, another horrid drink...No...I don't think I'd want to go back to the good old days. 

  

Sterilised,,,,had a shelf life of about six months.

Few fridges in those days,  zoomer.
