Does anyone remember getting issued the white NAAFI mug with their bedding in the early 70's?

I was entering the cookhouse when the canteen cowboy did a mug inspection. My mug had a tea stain in it, so he said, I can't let you drink out of this and my mug joined the other 50 smashed mugs on the floor.

It may not sound like much today, but it cost 50p to replace it. I might write to the BBC Panarama and complain. :roll:
Err cough. Autosol is multi purpose. Most of which are illegal and prohibited. Mysteriously we were issued with it at RMAS and very handy it was. But obviously never used for gas affected parts on GPMGs. ;)
