FOB Dwyer was an oddity. Americans did a huge op in the area and ended up just leaving behind tonnes of MREs instead of moving them with them. So the cooks there had all the mix and match of UK and US rations plus, because it had a refrigerated ISO container, it could stock piles of fresh food when it became through. For some reason, they always had melons available.There's a reason they were called FOB Nice and Lash Vegas.
On the other hand, Bastion was a steaming pile of fat soldiers stealing all available oxygen. There was definitely a balance to be struck between eating ORP and dodging bullets in a PB and getting depressed at the dregs in Bastion and Kandahar. Price and Lash were probably in that sweet spot.
