    If you really can't use it, put it outside, local moggies will love you, and maybe the odd fox. Shame to just bin it.

    Omg, as the youngster's say, I thought I was the only one, for once on exercise with the RE in the early 80's we were given war rations, I swear you could have built a bailey bridge from the biscuits. This thread has brought back a memory I had long forgotten!

    I opened a tin of tomatoes the other week that were ten years out of date, tasted a little bit metallic but were ok otherwise. Corned beef doesn't go metallic tasting as its too dry to soak up the metal taste. You've got to watch fish though, I had a rancid fish smell in the cupboard a couple of years ago and it turned out to be pilchards rotting in a tin due to the soldered seem failing.

    try soaking the labels off and eating the contents with the lights out- hours of fun !

    How many of us wildcampers were in the Army Cadets? .
    I ended up as a bombadier, who could fire a Bren gun, lay a 25 pounder and run a cookhouse .

    What I could do with mess tins, packet soups and compo rations!
    Maybe it was this experience that makes us the awkward s0ds that we have turned out to be.

    I fired the Bren, SLR, SMG, GPMG and of course the 303. I even got to fire a bazooka once!

    I drove a Chieftan tank and a Saladin armoured car as well as a DUKW.

    I got to go on a demolitions course where we were allowed to blow up an old Oak tree with PE. (It launched upwards like Apollo 13!). I also went on a booby trap course, which was scary.

    Being allowed to shoot things and blow stuff up is a right of passage. And who could forget the songs on the way to camp! ('Dinah, Dinah show us yer legs...', 'Royal Marines' etc.)
    God bless Colonel Sanders. Marvellous man!

    I started my army career at 15 yrs old in the JLRRE, or otherwise know as a FRED, which stands for First Royal Engineers Dover.
    My wife was TA Scaley when we first met, she used to live off army rations, had a cupboard full of cheese possessed and biscuits HB, she certainly knew how to cook with it.
    The best bit of kit in the rations was the can opener.
