By fun time I clearly mean hard time. What do they do when weather is this poor? Use the indoor facilitys or make them eat the snow? Seriously though I felt like a Nomad this morning walking in it, let alone running drills etc on it.
At work at the moment and typing in bursts. Though saying that I've seen more life in a graveyard than I've seen on this highstreet. Punctuation!! That was the word I was looking for. Thank ye kindly. :thumbleft:
Mother has been known to slip the odd snack into my bergen.
I find the best rat pack supplement is pitta bread. It's flat so it doesn't matter how crushed it gets in your kit and it lasts longer than normal bread as it's unleavened. Great for dipping into the boily bags. Other favourites of mine are pepperamis, nuts and the obligatory cereal bars etc.
One lad brought some caviar and crackers on to a training weekend once which raised a few smiles (and eyebrows amongst the PSIs.)
Fillet Mignon with dauphinois potatoes and seasonal vegetables.
We also get Thorntons chocolate instead of that Yorkie crap and a packet of extra soft baby wipes instead of the cheese grater bog roll.
Obviously everyone over the rank of Lance Private is allowed to take their man into the field in order to help administer themselves.
Chewing gum is not included in our rat packs and quite rightly so. As my Platoon Sgt once pointed out: ''This is the HAC, we do not sing songs on parade, we do not make jokes about Her Majesty the Queen, we do not vote Labour and we most certainly do not chew gum.''
