    Thanks Ron. So in your case you could rock up to your closest Maternity wing with your boiler & put the hard word on Matron for a quick Scan?

    Seriously, I never knew how it was done never having had the need, but it looks like a piece of cake. I bet it costs more than a wedge of Victoria Sponge though.

    I am waiting to see it at a military vehicle gathering serving up WW2 tucker. Bully beef stew, M&V and watery mash potatoes, deep fried spam and powdered eggs.

    Probably still got a lot. Just awaiting the chance to issue it. If you were an auction goer I am sure you noticed 40+ year old military stores being sold off. Find an ex-forces cook or two, greasy apron and singlet, beret, giggle shorts, boots without laces, and a roll your own with an inch of ash ready to fall in the stew.

    Greenbank. But I think all were made to the same D^D specification. There is probably a milspec specifying the % cigarette ash allowed in the stew.

    Which should also include the % of greasy singlet & laces for boots GP.


    Matter of Interest.

    Hampstead Barracks (NE of the City) was the training Centre for Army cooks yonks ago. Australian Army Supply Corps I recall it was.

    Each year they would put on a Banquet for Brass, Spouses & other Misc guests & judge food Presentations & I must admit the media showed a whole lot of interesting meals prepared by the Trainees. All were a bit different to some of the crap served up in Fixed Messes, so much so even the 24 hour Ration Packs (A,B,& C) were better prepared & tasted better albeit you had to prepare the meals yourself.

    Problem was you couldn't go back for seconds. Well, not unless the Jeep Driver tossed out more than he should have.

    4 Runner, maybe you could post a normal current meal menu?

    Must keep that one in mind for when 'er indoors makes the next spotted Dick I won't ask what custard she will be splashing it with as the bloke down the road has a Bull..
