Rat Packs

#1
Hello,

I am off parachuting this weekend and will be camping on the DZ for a few nights.

As a youthful ex-STAB, i quite like the new ratpacks as there not the shit all you old timers are used to. To this end, does anyone know where i can get my hands on either Bukshee rat packs (any nice kind QM's?) or where i can buy one cheap (my local surplus store was charging an arm and a leg)

If there are any kind and generous QM's out there i live in the north west!

Failing this, any good suggestions for food that can be cooked on Hexi-stove..

Cheers for any replys

I think you'll find that the kind and generous QM's you refer to are also the "old timers", so you'll get f*ck all - go and buy some, there is no such thing as bukshee

Water in a messtin, super noodles tabasco, corned beef or tinned fish or even bacon grill, tried Tescos? Cheaper than issued Rations (if bought!) and taste better!

And Grumpy Git, stop being a......Grumpy Git. I wasnt knocking old timers, i was knocking the shit rat packs they used to get. No such thing as Bukshee.....what about these 2 bukshee Hand grenades under my bed!?

(reference to hand grenades = a joke, please dont send 12 burly armed police men to my home)
