<aside>Can't remember mustard in the 10 man packs but we used to chuck a few DM in together and get extra stuff from the local shops to add to them prior to going on exercise
Just used to eat the stuff. Mattie Barr was i/c scran.Never seen Mustard in 10 man packs in '60s.Some of them packs went further back than '60's when we got them though.Seem to remember Mutton Jock was prolific.
Certain things were hated, eg compo sausages, biscuits AB. However some things were loved eg Oatmeal Blocks, chocy, Biscuits Fruit and Chicken Curry. Plus certain bits of kit were practical, I still have half a dozen tin openers which occasionally get used although most modern tins have ring pull openers, I also have some of the resealable lids which are useful for half used tins of beans, long haired CO doesn't eat them and a whole tin has dire consequences for the environment.Yes, there was mustard powder in the old compo boxes.
Looking at that rations website, why are people so fascinated with 25 year old tins of food that most of us hated at the time?
Egg Powder.....no chance.had a pack once that had tins of smokes in,Players,as I remember,oh,and a can of self heating soup.All chocolate seemed to be missing as well,SQMS Fox used to take it out for kids Christmas Party.Good to have egg banjo at endex with a slice of week old german bread,covered in mud and grease.Just used to eat the stuff. Mattie Barr was i/c scran.
Mutton Jock, Irish Spew..loved the oatmeal block. Never saw Chicken anything. Was there egg powder?
You can still get it though finding it in supermarket shelves is a quest.Loved the tubes of condensed milk and the tubes of jam
Remember buying the tubes of milk from a supermarket just for old times sake about 10 years back .
Don't know if it's still sold now .
Cheers mate , not looked in recent years but got the taste again now so will be doing some hunter gatheringYou can still get it though finding it in supermarket shelves is a quest.
