Hexi Blocks ( Substitutes )

Are Hexi Blocks still issued or is there an alternative fuel issued. Are the Ethanol sachets any good as I hear they burn longer and are cleaner on your metal mug ?
we still get issued HEXI but our unit so behind the times that comms are sent via pigeon :)
hahaha..... stir the tea bags thats for sure :)
I do recall many moons ago using the tinned chocolate from an arctic ration pack as a substitute after running out of hexi, it burnt well but the residue was a ba*tard to get off.
When I can, I use US Army Trioxane tablets. Very hot, cleaner than hexi and very easy to light.

Those greenheat sachets are shit. Not enough in one to make a brew, but two is too much.
Well Fallshirmjaeger, now I know why I had to escort the RE's to a disused compound to test a commercial slurry explosive for wall breaching last September, you buggers were using all the PE for brews :D .

PE4 is what you need for a quick brew on ops.
