  1. Takeaway's military-style operation to feed Marines

    A PLYMOUTH pizza delivery shop has prepared its largest order ever – for customers with a healthy appetite.

    The huge order of 58 XXL 15½ inch pizzas and 60 side orders took three delivery drivers 10 minutes to load into their cars, and was destined for Plymouth-based 42 Commando Royal Marines at Bickleigh Barracks.

    Papa Johns Pizza in Woolwell undertook the mammoth task of feeding 120 Royal Marines, some of whom are regular customers, drafting in extra staff to prepare the feast.

    Manager Matt Kerrigan said: "I was slightly apprehensive but we got to the barracks just after 7.30pm as requested.

    "We used every single pizza bag we had in the shop and squeezed all 19 of them into the cars.

    "It took about half an hour between all of us, we had about six staff to prepare and we started cooking the food at 6.30pm so it was ready just before 7.30pm.

    "I made the decision on the menu based on what they would normally order – this is the biggest order this store has ever had!"

    Matt even gave a 50 per cent discount on the order which normally would have cost just over £1,200, to the marines who are preparing for their latest Afghanistan deployment. They are due to take over security in the Nad-e Ali District from The Parachute Regiment in April.

    "We had an escort from the main gates to the Sergeant's Mess and we also gave the guys about 105 free Papa Johns baseball caps to wear out in Afghanistan," added Matt.

    15" is XXL these days? When I were a grotty student, I could get a 19" (with five toppings of your choice), plus chips, two desserts and two cans of coke delivered within half and hour for the bargain basement price of £12.50!

    Good luck to the Marines, my local Domino's (other shite catering establishments are available) can't even get a large meat feast and garlic bread correct!
  6. Have they closed the cookhouse at Bickleigh then?
