[quote="cartav"]Square sausages, bacon rolled up in greasy paper

Come on mate, those "square sausages used to be called "soya links" didn't they ? They were bloody AWFUL !


"it was something like goulash out of a tin",

Didn't they have a beef strog around that time ?

I remember the curry was good. Chicken Supreme was fast becoming the new Mutton Scotch, it was becoming universally hated when I left Germany. Our mob were calling it "Chicken Vomit" by then.

The look of chicken supreme (Total misname) was enough to put anyone off. Someone must have been getting brown envelopes to keep ordering that stuff. Don't think I knew anyone who liked it.

Cockroaches crushed resemble cracked black pepper I think he is trying to say.

Maybe it was we were still rationed in the '50s and were used to 90% bread sausage, but the square things were OK, & didn't roll off the bread (When there was any). Funny, no one's mentioned corned beef, or those hard tack biscuits which broke teeth. Always shoved a pack of those in my ammo pouches for emergency, and I could still kill for corned beef.

Just remembered.......... when possible the QM issued fresh rations as opposed to compo, the Army called it "Fresh Rats" on paper work. A copy of some order was misplaced, the lads read it without comprehending & thought it was a Pied Piper Hamelin special. Mutiny aborted by an explanation on First Parade.

I don't think we had corned beef in the compo.

Those biscuits though. There was time I had a bad tooth and was too gutless to go and have it filled. (Squarehead dentist in Paderborn in those days !)

Anyway I was on radio watch one night, grinding a compo biscuit up and a pointy fragment was driven down into my hollow tooth.

I'd have gone through the roof but I was in a Saracen command post ! pale

My introduction to compo was as an apprentice,when we were taken to Kettlewell to set up a base camp prior to be sent out on various exercises.A group of 5 were given 2x ten man packs and a small stove and told to plan our meals as there was nowt else for the next 5 days (yep 5 days instead of 4). This was a learning curve on it`s own.After the shite of the first day we managed some not too bad meals,or maybe it was because we were traipsing over the moors all day,and a scabby horse would have been a treat,,,...

Went on Exercise Holdfast (Tmimi & El Adem) in 1960 and lived on Mutton Scotch style - what foul grub esp[ecially with a bit of sand on it, plus the flies.

It's nice to see that there's somebody else who was in Libya !

When we went there in (I think) '67 we called it Battle Group Training.

We supported the Sherwood Foresters in those days.

It was weird, we flew from wintry Gutersloh in Britannias and landed to find El Adem like a furnace.

We, also were under canvas at T'mimi, just up the via Balbia from Bomba.

The battery that followed us were in the last group to train in Libya, the Middle East War was brewing and after King Idris was ousted the w- (sorry arabs) made it clear that the Brits were not allowed in any more.

From then on it was off to Canada for us all !

I like Spam, it is gluten free, so ok for Coeliacs like me. These days you can get the hot/spicy spam and Spam with Bacon. I like it sandwiches with mustard, or fried for brekkie. At least the Yanks invented some decent tucker. Laughing

NOW..what has Spam got to do with the Royal Wedding, did they have Spam Sambos (Aussie for sandwiches) at Buck Pal? Twisted Evil

Sarneys, English for Sambos? affraid

Coeliac Disease was discovered in the early 1950's. So one would think that the Army Catering Corps Chefs/Cooks or at least the Warrant Officer Caterer would have aware of dietary needs: i.e. Gluten Free, no wheat, barley, oats or rye. Also Veggie meals/Kosher meals for other bods. Even no pork chops for soldiers of the Jewish faith.

What say ye GINGER? Any training/education for you ACC bods in dietary requirements or was it the same grub for every bugger. confused

Thanks Gordon, CD it hit my immune system last September, lost 30 kg. Just finished a 6 week course of Steroids, has helped the small bowel, now on gluten free diet for life. No beer, no real bread, no real bikkies, no pork pies, well you can drink it/eat..Wheat, Barley, Oats Rye, but you will be sick for days and it can kill you. affraid You heard the story at the party, all true old son. Evil or Very Mad
But I can eat the ALDI BRATWURST - Gluten free ! cheers

One is born with the CD genes, hits people at different ages, babies to old buggers. In the 1st World, 1 in 500 people have the disease. I got the severe villous atrophy with it too. Google that one. Hence my travel plans now, get stuck in, while I can. Basketball

Where is our Resident WO Caterer..Ginger..I need some some gluten free recipies old son.

Anyway thanks for your concerns..let us leave the subject. bom
