How bad can army rations be? haha


Recommended Posts

JOLLY is a British duo comprising Josh Carrott and Ollie Kendal, who try out and react to various products, the majority of which are food.

In the past, Carrott and Kendal have reviewed army rations from a range of countries such as France, Korea, Australia, Germany and Russia.

On Aug. 2, they shared that they had received a bundle of MREs (Meals Ready to Eat) from a Singapore supplier.

Well, if you have served in the early 70, you would know the condition of army ration. The rice we ate then were old stock. If you want hard boiled egg, queue last. If you wish to have fresh uncooked egg, queue right in front. Why, it depends on where the egg is taken from the drum they poured the hot water into the morning. haha

hmm outfield is combat rations. at least ATEC mission phase is sure combat rations.
Most of my unit outfield is cookhouse food, but still depends on your CO.

I heard SIR/Guards outfield is 100% combat rations.

I could never forget the smell from the SAF green can sardine. If it is stained onto No 4 on the field, the smell will stay together for the next few days.

The only edible is the can pork cube.

The hard tart biscuit I like it though.

yup. Of course. I throw away the combat rations when i receive them. Or pass them to whoever wants them (which in ICT is hardly anyone).

Maybe just keep the fruit bar.

Never tasted the latest SAF combat ration before, but when you hungry in the jungle, all combat rations taste great lah. Last time I saw my platoon mates eating combat rations in bunks instead of cooked food. It's really convenient also because don't need to cook and it is quite easy to clear after eating. Also got dessert, and eating dessert outfield is really nice. I miss my combat rations.

Can spread that sardine on biscuit and they go quite well together. That's how the laojiao taught us and we just pass it on to the next gens. But that version of combat ration got discontinued.
