In the days when "Cooks of the mess" prepared the ingredients for the Galley to cook it was common parlance to say "Knock up a Clacker"....I know the Aussie use/meaning of the word clacker but I want to establish what the ingredients of "a Clacker" were. Anyone remember?

Welcome to Rum Ration, RNSnaps.

Clacker = pastry, especially when cooked as the crust on a pie.

"A clacker" was a little bit of pastry coated with jam (like a jam tart) and sometimes dried fruit.

Most frequently used in the first sense as pastry esp on a pie.
