And today, the final straw, they are getting rid of the old Army favourite "The Puffing Billy!" Quote; "The equipment has been declared as obsolescent as it is no longer supported in service. The equipment was originally a component of the field kitchen and was recently replaced in-service by the Operational Field Catering System (OFCS). If at any time there is a new operational requirement, a USUR for new equipment should be raised, with ECI Project Team assistance" Gutted, the letter also states serious saftey issues!
