Quick rations question

Are 10 man rations (or any number other than individual) packs still available and are they boil in the bag? Just curious as to crew feeding and central feeding in FOBs etc!

Yes.

Similar idea to the old type, with lots of cheap noodles for some reason in the ones I saw.

Depends on the FOB / PB, they were a luxury in ours as we just had a stock pile of 24hr and a box full of left overs.

Thanks, seems logical, were the bib meal sachets bigger then?
No they're not BIB they are as polar says similar to the old style Tins, main meals, fruit chocolate, sweets etc, unfortunatly as G4 is a dark art and I'm not allowed anywhere near it I couldn't tell you the exact contents.

You're like me, never know when there will be civil war.
Almost dissapointed that the summmer inner city BBQ season didnt spread to here so I could shoot looters and dispense summary justice. I have a feeling I may know when they could be a civil war but I'm better off preparing for natural disasters unless you consider the plod going on strike being an unnatural one?

I've said it befoer but i'll repeat it the Chinese takeaways are the ones to watch, they all close Tuesday nights for party meetings, there is one in even the smallest village. It's been noted that many are older type houses that have cellars, i'll not mention what I think is in these cellars but an educated chap like you will guess.
The Russians are only behaving because they are saving up and they're laughing at our ever decreasing spending on defence. The time will come and i'll be as ready as I can be.

Can you not make it next Thursday at 09:45 please. Also, can I bring a friend and I need to tell TSO how long I'll be away.
Post apocolyptic doom recognises no time!

I suppose the one problem with the breakdown of law and order is what gets put in its place which means one of us has to line up the civil servants against the wall along with the MPs.

We have a cash and carry card and when we need big amounts of food I get her to buy the catering cans of spam and corned beef etc, that with the big tins of beans and I'm in heaven portioning it into containers and freezing as ready meals for the rugrats!

You'd be hard pushed to get a tin of pork ********* for cheaper than that. My other half isn't impressed and assured me civil unrest is not going to happen so I celebrated last weekend by buying some Kilner jars from Makro.

Loads of canning websites from America using such jars, the recent programme about the Amish showed them canning (bottling) beans. I'll be ready when those Chinese and Russians turn up. They'll not get me i'll be holed up like Anne Frank in my bunker.

Ten rations packs today contain silver foil meals ie. beef, mince etc etc. No individual choclate sachets now its one large pouch,
Lots of nuts and Tally Chocolate slabs. Soup yeast herbs fairly well thought out with enough beans for blazing saddles.
Ugly speak to somone nice am sure they'll slip you a box.

Yes 10 man is still available, there are about 5/6 differant menus. If you do put in a demand then on the special instructions put what menus you want. If you need them urgently then RDD essential it.
