Food fight at Bastion !!

#1
This was classic, we were all sitting down, finishing off our christmas dinner. Everyone is hyper and excited, EOD are at the other end of the table. One of them plucked up the corouge to throw a piece of biscuit at us (50 sqn). Well, I wasn't keen on my mince pie and it soon landed on some poor sappers napper from EOD. Within seconds the whole place erupted with coke, spuds, biscuits everything being thrown at each other.

Targets certainly fell with hit.

Of course, we adopted the taliban tactics of shoot and scoot and left the place in chaos. Apperently, 20 sqn, another Sqn in our regiment started one in the other kitchen, so food fights, a corp thing perhaps?

Bringing back memories of Bosnia on Christmas 1997 I was with 15 Fld PK Sqn as we were frowned upon by the RMP for all wearing dresses at our crimbo lunch. After one of the lads sung them a nice rendition of Hey Hey were the monkeys next thing a mass food fight with them fleeing out the cookhouse. All good natured fun, have a good one NIGtrained :D

Brings back memories of Germany in late 70s. Very young subaltern at his first Christmas dinner stands on a table to try and stop the fight and gets a christmas pud in the face. That was not the problem, it was the bowl that it was still in that did for him.

In later years we would clear all ammo from the tables as each course finished to try and remove temptation.

Dunno about the rest of the Army, but Yes, Foodfights are almost guaranteed at any Reg'tl Christmas dinner.

Happy Christmas NT. Happy Christmas to the rest of your lads too.

If you see any of the 48 Massive, please pass on Happy Christmas and Best wishes from Waterbeach.

Led to believe the RM have been in a real fight in Helmand today.

Merry Christmas boys. May you be armed with sprouts and wrights sausage rolls to launch at the taliban.

I don't think it is just an RE thing. A long standing tradition in the British Army - and long may it continue. (I love it when some Officer or other SNCO whines because they have received some incoming, makes them sound so pathetic).

I wouldn't wish them on my worst enemy!

On a serious note, all those deployed (including HM Ships at sea-been there myself not too long ago) who are reading this, merry xmas and I hope you return safely. This is the first xmas I've spent with my parents since 2001 due to being deployed, duty etc so I've treasured it a bit more.

(and I've been drinking in a couple of 'residents only' hotel bars in Ireland today with the step brother and we've been perving at the Eastern European waitresses :D )

I remember well the RSM of 21 ER standing up and shouting ( at a cookhouse christmas scoff one year) "there will be no, repeat no food thrown at any time during this meal"

Oh dear.

He was twatted by a full unopened can of red, and the place went ballistic!!!!

A couple of years ago the RSM at 35 went spackers because he got hit by food. The lad got thrashed with-in an inch of his life. Which some thought was a bit strong, seeing as his Sqn Badge had said he would give a crate to the first person to get a direct hit.

Been to and served on loads by Brompton 81 was the dugs.

We were entertained by the two Corps Bands in the cook hoose.
The Chatham band were at the down hill end and the Aldershot band were at the stair end.
We were warned that any food thrown would be followed immediatly by the beer being stopped.
Aye right we all thought, fk me when we saw the Jugs 'O' ale set up on tables the full lenght of the window side and the two bands squeezed in there it was a Sappers Paradise.
What a Fkin Sesh, the cookhoouse wimmin were strippin on the hotplate accompanied by "the Stripper" from both bands.
It turned into a grudge match play between the bands as we were entertained and served beer until nearly 20.00hrs and then up the stairs to the Stomp fkin brilliant.

I have also been on a shitty mountain road in the Balkans surrounded by Xmas trees with a tin of mixed fruit pudding and a zippo for ma dinner. not quite the same somehow.

12 Sqn Circa '89, you could feel the tension as soon as you entered the cookhouse, oh how the potatoes flew.
Was that where the Badge of 43 got a mince pie to the side of his swade as he stood and admired all his fat planty lads??

Oh how I cried with laughter....you just couldnt write that!

Needless to say the poor fecker was singled out, and as we were up stairs in RHQ's bar, he was on the square getting beasted big style!

Happy days :)
