From this morning's Telegraph, the recipe book of an 8th Army cook. Rabbit curry sounds quite nice

Rabbit curry is lovely. we have it all the time.
I'm sure I've eaten it a time or two myself. I have certainly had some very dodgy looking chicken bones in curries eaten in various establisments around Lumb Lane in Bradford
Chicken is a fraction of the price of rabbit so I doubt it!

This was a long time ago; could have been a local cat I suppose

I have my grandfather's recipes from that time (MID at El Alamein, as an RASC master baker). Stew for 80 men, date barm and all kinds of dodgy-looking things.

These days of course it's almost compulsory, but in 1940 going to Manchester was exotic for my family. :D

Why is she auctioning this sterling work? Couldn't she have found a publisher?
