What was your favorite 'Cure All' for those 'bleeping, pounding, gawd-awful hangovers after a heavy night in the NAAFI, the Mess or a 'run ashore' outside barrack gates?

I can remember some of the Old Timers in the unit had their own 'Cure All' for the next morning, ranging from the traditional greasy breakfast of bacon, eggs, fried bread and gallons of Cookhouse tea or coffee with lashings of sugar and milk...... affraid ... all followed on with a good clear out down the Bog (both ends..!! Embarassed about an hour later (2 fingers down the throat to puke everything up). Gawd, the smell in the ablutions block was incredible (& the state of the floors, Bog seats and walls)

Then there were the self-medicated 'cures' from a local pharmacy - half a tin of 'Andrews' Liver salts, and grand heave-ho puke session first thing after falling out of the old pit!!

Other 'Cure Alls' were also no doubt used, including going for a run before breakfast to clear the head followed by fifty press ups. If that didn't cause either the 'World to fall Out of the Bottom', or a 'Puke Fest' then over to the Cookhouse for breakfast... Yuck!

One long service Corporal I knew - his 'cure all' was a pint glass, 4 raw eggs, salt, pepper a dash of Lea & Perrins sauce, then a dash of vodka, and all wizzed up together, then downed in one...... Yuck, and double-Yuck!

Another one, not a cure all, was to drink a couple mugs full of water before falling into said pit to try and avoid dehydration during the night.... problem was it usually meant travelling in the night to the urinals for a clear out.... but occasionally one was far to pished... and the nearest locker or pair of boots DMS were just as 'useful'...
'little accidents' occurred.... Rolling Eyes

One 'Cure All' I was introduced to was 'Underberg', a disgusting concoction of herbs in alcohol brewed by some monks in a monatry far, far away. I noticed that most bars in Germany had these little bottles, and was used as a 'Cure All' even by Germans. Funnily enough 'Underberg' did work after a couple of these small bottles - but the secret of 'Underburg' was in reality it was the 'Hair of the dog', another drink to make the hangover go away. drunken

Hmm, strange...since I packed up drinking many years ago... (a day at a time).... I've never had a hangover...... and the old liver is fine...... Sleep

A good plate of porridge with salt,it will absorb the alcohol greatly.But if you don't like porridge I would recommend a plate of cornflakes with a big mug of tea.

An Irish bloke we had in our battery told me once to half-fill a glass with lemonade, top it up with milk then drink it in one go.

I tried it, and after a huge "burp" I did, in fact, feel a lot better.

(Remember though, add milk to lemonade, the other way round gets very messy !).

I did once try the old "4 eggs, milk, pepper, Underberg, Vodka, Sugar, salt etc.." all whisked up in a pint mug. Not sure if it did work, it was sooo many years ago. But what it did do was to give me a good clear out from both ends.....

I just managed to make it to the khazi, dropped said strides (not forgetting undercrackers), and the whole world fell out of me bottom, followed by much 'projectile puke' onto the Bog floor.

Wasn't to bad as it could all be hosed down afterwards and pushed with an ablutions floor squeeze into the drain holes in the middle of the ablutions floor. drunken

i did try this 'cure' once before..... and forgot the old undercrackers..... Pheeew!! Wot a mess I had to clear up.

( I am writing the thoughts of Uncle Vanya, once resident of Fransisca Kaserne, st Tonis (BAOR) near Kerefeld, West Germany, for the perusal of future generations of S Sleep quaddies and other for 'Research Purposes' into the lives, and habits of the lower ranks....... affraid
