Ah yes, the hard tack biscuits, we had them twice a week & had great fun skimming them down the dining area, they were no good for anything else. Our food was ok if you consider that we only had 1 ACC sergeant & whoever was on jankers, the cooking was achieved using wood burning stoves that were kept burning all night for cooking breakfast. The seageant chef must have been a magician because he managed to put up some tasty meals on very meagre supplies.

Hi  Ken we had to use Pom at least once a week and I remember a ruse I used to fool the lads.  What I decided to do was boil some potatoes mash them up and mix with the potatoe  powder and voila wool had been pulled over eyes but I must say just the once!!. Also another issue we had was hard tack biscuits these were added to soups as a thickening agent .Regards Harry.I.
