dont worry about it housil i have several orp from 2003 -2007 and thats what you get :?
there was a change around 2007(due to ration fatigue and rambling from the press)

Sounds like the new 24 hour multi-climate rations (MCR)?

That picture of the hotpot seems strange, did it actually have pork in it?

Hotpot is supposed to be Beef or Lamb! Looks like it might have been mis-labeled to me :mrgreen:

Just to make sure, the white plate is the hotpot I had, the colored plate (last pic) was an earlier pork casserole I had

Ollie, I think you will find the beef and dumplings a bit better.
Just add more salt, pepper and a knifepoint of mustard
Also some good bread and butter :wink:
