Rat packs in the 80's

Sorry to bother, but bijou discussion in the office (many retired officers) what were the main meals in the above? Got chicken sublime, babies heads, and that indeterminable mince - but what were the remainder? Apparently there were only four choices, I seem to remember 8 or was that pooches appeared?

None of that changed much until GP ration packs came in. Those were lovely.

Have we had one on the best colour of the Spangles? If so then we must be getting close to the edge.

Yeah. I definitely do. Especially the GP ration packs - those ******* would be nice for a wee hike in the various mountains that litter the ground not far from me.

Yep. That's what we used to lob at the vegetarians (mainly female) on OTC weekend camps when they asked "what's the vegetarian option Sgt Major?". Bloody students!:smile:
