Nothing wrong with the food we had a 1 Corps, and nothing wrong with the food I serrved up when running the 'Field Kitchens', Sgt Brown always got us some potatoes, instead of the powdered 'POM', and as a Signalman, I did not have to order people to peel the spuds, they all volenterred, and I had no complints, as least not to my face.

shelldrake, the only messing was from the catapillars and maggots , the cook sgt always joked about extra meat rations and protein, but all in all our cooks really were bloody atrocious , i am not kidding . the only decent meals i had while in the army were on the military train from the hook into germany . the best was when we were on a convoy and running out of hours , we managed to get putb up for the night in RAF EINDHOVEN . that was like a first class hotel , the food was sheer heaven , ginger

Nice hot choco drink
Take one pint mug (we all have one "world biggest mug "..

Can't wait for the first cold night to try out these new recipes. Which is best whisky or brandy but agree with Brum this might be a waste of a good single malt or vintage brandy. I assume the gut rot variety is best

Knowing Tesco it is probably bottled in Peckham! A nice Glenmorangie or a Dalmore 62 should do the trick but without the Hot Chocolate. Laughing
