    For those who wish to relive old times.
    I have, using great skill and cunning, sortied out on to t'interweb, alone and unaided, and sourced a supplier of the mythical compo Sausage in Lard
    I know, I know.

    They may be purchased at the bargain price of only 29 of your English pence per tin.(or 25p each for 4)

    Please note that there is a flat postage rate of £5.50 for >25 kg of shopping, they also overnight it and the fresh meat I bought was still chilled and in good nick(Styrofoam box with ice-alike sachets)

    I have no connection with the firm obviously, cos they're in Essex innit.

    Based on their price to the MoD perhaps?
    Cynic, moi?

    Can buy a case for £10 secondhand, but all tins have the middle sausage removed for some reason.

    Sausages, and the cheese are supplied by CMOT Dibbler, hence the price.
