The British soldiers are expected to carry a 'tommy-cooker/Esbit stove get-up, in their kit, just like the Germans, whom, by the way, carry their own steel knife/fork/spoon set. It's no secret, EPa's have no plastic spoon/whatever. 8) P.S. Americans don't say 'Kit'. We say 'Gear'.
After the Chicken and the Egg, came the "Omelet"!

One bummer is that as far as I can see there is no hazlenut spread, was looking forward to try one of the red squeeze tubes! Thought they were included in almost every ration :lol:

So I've had the all day breakfast and it was awesome.. The gas it gave me after was other worldly. Your mileage may vary but if you don't want get voted off the life raft you might want to try it to see how it treats you.

Ringo: Hey, John, who has been messing with my drum kit?

John: It was Paul, he called it a drum gear cause of the American influence of his wife Linda.

Yes, mess-kit, is correct, for that item only. Everything else is gear, not kit. My bad.
