  1. 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.

  9. Based on their price to the MoD perhaps?
    Cynic, moi?
  10. Can buy a case for £10 secondhand, but all tins have the middle sausage removed for some reason.

  13. Don't think it is possible but that's not my concern.
  14. Sausages, and the cheese are supplied by CMOT Dibbler, hence the price.
