To be honest most of it was acceptable, the rest was bearable at a stretch the only thing that i couldn't force myself ...
In the 1960's the Compo was mainly tinned .... Jam Roly Poly was like a lump of lead . Remember tubed Condensed Milk and Hard Tack biscuits which I think were made by a Dog Biscuit Company . There was another item in a tube ... could have been smoked cheese . I think the chocolate was bars of Tiffin ... again normally white with age .
PS; I neglected to mention in my opening post that the packs of noodles were also only contained in the ten man catering packs - we had so many of the fuckers on Telic 1 that even the chogies were telling us where to shove them.

When was your day? I remember getting these on one of my exercises in Phase 1 training, around October 1995. (Not seen since then though)
