Quite a fun read....Just wish people would remember we drink gallons in the field. Everytime we stop moving for longer than 5 minutes burners are out and tea is on! Once totally baffled a Texan ANG lad on exercise by brewing up whilst providing Fire support to another Company's attack.....

Heheh, we used to do the same thing when playing enemy on excercises - we'd be in position waiting to be attacked by the 'good guys', brew up, have a smoke, the odd shot to let them know we were still there...

When i was in i was a Odd exception, i hated Tea and coffee.... so i would brew up hot Ribena..... i got the pish taken a fair bit and some of my mates still call me "Berry" ..... and Ribena hides the taste of puri tabbed water better than tea IMO

Nice mention of the little tins of Pate that the 24 hour rat packs come with..

Even tho i must admit i threw all the ones in my packs away after opening one...........
