Shall we start the bidding off at say £5?
Is that for the person to try and prize it from my cold lifeless hands.:swordfigh:aargh4::BlueTeamE
Thats the one! okenest:
In my ration pack i got tuna and mayo it was surprisingly good, also whats wrong with those biscuits?
Ohh my jebus where do we buy tactical bacon?!!
Oh yes, have you had the princes pate sachet yet,Yum, theres nowt wrong with biscuits brown, either dunked in you morning brew, or crumbled into a pudding good solid fibre,incidently thats what you'll be passing a few days after if you eat the whole packet in one go. there are very few things in rations that i don't like, there was a main in the arctic rations that tasted like sick, but then again it always had the dried rice desert in the same box so ups and downs.now i need to find some of that rice it tasted like baby rice but amazingly sweet, luvely.
There are quite a few of us on this forum who have spent quite some time in the forces, so yes.
The smell of hexi burning makes me hungry.
Granted, the first thing most of us did was buy a Coleman Multifuel stove, which we could run on waste aviation fuel (a real bonus on exercise), but the memory endures.
As for ratpack food, I miss making all in stew.
All in stew, a plesure to eat, a bugger to clean.
a good dose of "Man up" will sort that out.
As Graham_S said - many of us have served. - I really miss rat packs myself. Particularly "rocket fuel" as my mate used to call his tea with SIX sugars! lol.
there is something special about tea from a norgee flask that's been stewing for 4hrs and is about 50% sugar
Soaked to the skin, freezing cold, and covered in mud.
Nothing tastes finer.
It's a good leson to learn, always be first to the urn, if your not you just know the section fezzer will have dipped his mug in, you know the one half his dinner round his chops and someone else has probaobly had to carry his bergan cause of his shin splints. he couldn't figure out the nozle system so just popped the top and dunked his gipping cup leaving a few blades of grass as a warning.
Range day, Babies heads!!
Screeeeeeeeeech........... Or is that just local to us loonies
quite correct Graham.
lol - Screech is the best substance known to man! - shame they replaced it with shiny new stuff
Love army ration packs. They remind me of my youth. I also wouldn't go anywhere without my hexi stove.
Didn't army ration packs used to have apple flakes in them? I have a memory of my older brothers bringing them home after being away with the army cadets in the 1970s.
Now your talking apple flakes, rolled oats and chocolate powderYES!
I have fond memories of the apple flakes from my army cadet days. Didnt like the brown biscuits though!
I didnt get apple flakes i got some strange fruit bits, they were good but i cant imagine where they came from
I spose you're all right now whenever i smell hexi i think of food.
Those fruit bits are just like fruit leather, tasty.
Dont we all love leather though?
