Hey,

I know:
A-G = GP
S1-3 - Sikh/Hindu
H1-3 = Halal (Muslim/Islam)
V1-3 = Veggy
P1-4 = Patrol (Dehydrated)
K1-3 = ????? NOT A CLUE ??????/

Thanks

I knew a Hindu soldier who LOVED bacon.

"I can't get this at home" he said.

Yep, the rats in a veg box have some superior contents like the replacement for the paté. The rest is sht though.

Most Hindus can eat pork etc.

Now, as for the look on a certain Indian student's face when the finer details of the ingredients of a hamburger were explained to him- that was a sight I will take with me to my grave.

I remember most vegies being WRACs...

Normally ones who were always trying to lose weight, and used the vegi line to basically starve themselves to death.

Oh, the tears when they were told to eat their sausages and bacon or else.... (On Ex early '90s).

I had young girls passing out on the third, fourth day on Ex. On investigation, it would come out they havent eaten for 2 days!

"I dont like the ORP, I dont like what the slops are dishing up!"

I doubt if things have changed!

The veggie rat packs are pretty good...I always try and demand a mix of normal and veggie for my section when on ex as the curries in em are fantastic....

Can any bored storeman detail for our pleasure what you get in the various ration packs?

I remember going from the tinned individual compo rations (A-D, not much variety and we only ever used to get the same two) to the boil in bag ones that were a lot better but the sundries were rubbish, tea powder and coffee whitener instead of tea bags and milk powder.

Remember the old arctic packs? Dehydrated mince and peas. Never managed to turn them into anything decent.

Found a tin of snake and pygmy pudding the other day!

And the most telling thing about that is that the foil pouch is labelled "Chicken Pasta Mush".

Never was a truer word...

fcuking menu c / lamb stew for 2 months solid on TELIC1.....haven't been able to eat lamb since. broken man.

I didn't think you got the cheese spread anymore. I recall getting lots of ratpacks with the "Cheese Removed" tape on, and since our CSM at the time had a sense of humour he'd wander round harbour areas giving out Dairylea triangles instead :)

When will they get rid of the treacle pudding its bloody awful. Although I liked the tabasco sauce you get in them now and the new ones with the curry and rice are brilliant.
