?Cackleberry (negat crackle..). Whistleberries per contra being baked nbeans. Always understood that train smash was tinned tomatoes. Herrings In were always Herrings In. Supplied (like Corned Dog and ship's biscuits) as emergency rations, which had to be rotated to keep in date, so tended to turn up rather regularly. The corned dog was in 56lb tins so rather a problem in a minesweeper to get through a tin in one sititng as it were.

I would say

"train smash" was Arigoni's (tinned toms) and sausages at worst the tinned type or rashers of bacon.

"Elephants feet" Spam fritters.

I have always taken it from Egg Banjo where after completion you always find egg yolk down your front and attempt to wipe if off. The wiping motion being akin to playing a Banjo, well thats what my sea dad told me!

Don't have to spend time at sea, I heard those expressions as a teenager, that is about the time that Pontious had just gained his wings.
