  2. Salad? In a ratpack? How does that work? desicated lettuce in a box?
  3. I rather like the new rat packs. I always throw half mine away.

    I think the boil in the bag ploughman's lunch was a bit ambitious though...
  4. Sure this has be covered on here before. I thought the new ones were pretty good last year - remember this was only one letter, and to the daily mail. The rat packs (did) come with feedback cards if you did think that they were that gopping.
  5. It has to be true - 'hellsbrink' says everything we read in the papers is completely on the level and all information is correct!

  6. Lettuce?,,,how does that work then?,do you have to reconstitute it?,how about salad dressing (olive oil+lemon juice+black pepper)?,is it a special variety that does not wilt in the heat of a Afghani Summer?,does it come with tomatoes and grated cheddar?.....The mind boggles....
  7. instant fruit muesli, breakfast of champions
  8. I think they feedback cards have 'expired'. You'll still find them in there though. Bit likewhen you had to replace the chocolate and cheese possessed.
  9. So they're not going hungry because of lack of food. They're going hungry because they are picky *******. I used to hate some of the old tinned compo stuff, but I ate the ******* stuff when I was hungry.

    In short, stop dripping, man the **** up and eat what's put in front of you.

  10. The ideal: Corn/Beef Hash, Sausage and Beans, Lancs Hotpot, Treacle Pudding, 3xYorkie, Biscuit Fruits, Beef Pate.

  11. they're clearly not hungry enough, their manning should be reduced so they have to work harder.
  12. Boil in the bag Currywurst and Pommes Mayo. It's the future.

    If they don't like the food, pay, conditions, deployments, etc, etc, then they should make the obvious choice. Since Afghhanistan kicked off, the amount of ******* whining has steadily grown to embarrassment levels. Don't like it, sign off. You'll be replaced.

  13. You'd eat it if they were hungry enough.

    As my gran used to say.

    My Primary school teacher used to tell us when she was young, her Mother used to t hreaten to send their food to Africa in a jiffy bag if they didn't eat it... her sister used to shout 'they can have mine'... this must have been in the 1940/50s!
  14. When the mixed menu rations came out there was a guy in my unit who only ate menu 3 as that was the only one he could eat (liked). if your that hungry you'd eat it!
