What's all this depravity, putting Bromide in the men's tea to stop them thinking of women ?

Pshaaw ! I say, as well as Haarrumph ! In my day we didn't need chemicals.

The Five Fingered Widow, that's all we had to take our minds of things, dammit !

Never did me any harm, (apart from going blind, a muscular right arm and hairy palms that is).

our cook cpl christmas 57. decided to make the lads a christmas cake, he knocked up a half decent fruit cake but then came the snag , no icing sugar of any kind in the cookhouse, he decided to make his own icing , he had a couple of drums of the old army margerine, you know the muck that doubled as axel grease, he put the marge in a big tin bowl and stirred it until it was plyable, he then added a tin of pink coloured stuff he got from the civilian canteen , he actually covered the fruit cake with this mixture and lo and behold , he had a pink christmas cake, it really looked great , but as they say the proof of the pudding is in the eating, YUUUUUK it really tasted disgusting , no matter how many pints of tea you drunk from the tea urn you could not get rid of the greasy muck from your mouth, mind you it had to be 10 out of 10 for trying , and he made it look good, but hells bells that margerine was bad enough on bread , just imagine pink icing , yuk, ginger

Returning to the bromide thread for a bit....

I hadn't heard of the use of bromide to curtail the, shall we say, libido of soldiers but I have heard of the use of saltpeter. When I was attending Cornwall in Dortmund, which had a boarding school as well (although I was a day student), it was heavily rumoured saltpeter was put into the school lunches. Gawd, something had to be put in to them! Vile concoctions, they were!!!

Now, I have no idea if saltpeter has a taste to it or, if it does, what it tastes like (I don't imagine salt...or pet....oh , never mind....), and this was the early 70's after all when such widespread what we would see as abuse now of a population was just more or less accepted. Not really "abuse" per se....more an invasion of privacy/autonomy. What would it matter? We were all just school kids!!!

Whether or not it was used on us, who knows? That it may have been used on soldiers....to of course keep them in line and save the military from the embarrassment of bastard children and outraged families demanding compensation for said bastards, maybe......

Oh you must have !

Came in tins in the compo, couple of inches wide, half an inch thick, brown and crumbly.

It was mentioned earlier that you could make porridge out of them, (so it said in the compo instructions), I suppose you could if you had the time and patience !

Apparently they're very good at linking with royal weddings.
