The new boy on a 434/432 crew had to get the water heaters going while you were on the road, put cans of whatever in them, stew and peas were good i remember, these would cook en route. once i applied the brakes i would hold out my hand and i expected a black plastic mug of hot tea to be placed in it. while the engine was at idle to cool down, the new boy would dish up the food, use some of the hot water to make POM (now there is a black art), then make coffee for the crew, and then use the remainder of the water to do the washing up.
Cheese possessed was best heated in the can to melt, then mixed with a packet of mustard powder and poured over bread.
Brilliant

Potato Powder, Jim. Quite useful as a temporary cooling system sealant, glue, and sometimes eaten in either liquid or solid form (depending on who was the "chef" at the time).

POM, as Paul said was potatoe powder. A good pom maker was a person to be cultivated, it was notoriously horrid if you got it wrong, but great if it was done right, so if you got a good one on your team you never ever let them go.

Good job I wasn't on your team Steve.
I remember making it for the cook on arrival at one location about 9pm It was that thin he said to put jam in it and serve it as semolina.

Pom was awful stuff,first time I had it I thought it was wallpaper paste,it was good as a thickening agent for soups etc but on its own no,I've never entertained powdered potato since.

My mate was the SQMS and he made a brilliant all in stew, everything went in. He brought the rations out to us once on exercise when we were being visited by a Brigadier.

He asked him what the troops were having to which he replied "FBPOS Sir"

The Brig look puzzled and asked him what that was.

The reply was "a FUCKING BIG PAN OF STEW Sir"
