I may go down the rat pack route myself. The new type look good, lots of variety.

they are, but I wouldn't recomend the lamb curry though for the event, not without a good toilet near by, last time I had one I had to go take my shovel and show Terry Taliban my white backside, not pleasent in 55 degree + midday heat.

If enough people want them, we could look into group buying a case of rations, either British or U.S MRE's. Not very period I know but, they contain the calories to keep you going.

The new MRE's are better, I hear. Mind, I always was a sucker for the compo corned beef hash and beef stew with dumplings. The puddings are crap though, with the exception of the rice pudding.

The yank MRE's are great now!, managed to get hold of 14 of them when I was out in Afghan, one layer of Barbed wire fence verses standing on the back of a 4ton truck, I win, but I managed to eat them all in 7 days out on an OP straight after getting them, great stuff!.

and I only have one packet of Boil in the bag Rice pudding left out of all my stash, If I had been in my old unit then I could have gotten hold of a ten pack box by just raiding the exercise store, but job moved!

No worries. There's a couple of vendors I've seen who do them by the case. They work out at about a tenner each, so, more expensive than canned stuff but, easier to transport and much higher calorie content.

walked the site with pete last weekend, its ok. (by the way im only posting this so chummers doesnt delete me again LOL)
I will say make sure you all have decent boots and socks.
As it was just a recce i didnt put proper boots on and i wore standard nylon socks, after some 2 hours or so and various hills, dips,streams and mud holes i regretted it.
I like to think i have a good resistance to pain but when i took my boots off (german army) i had a wonderful inch long flap of what used to be skin on my heel flapping around in the breeze.

When it comes to your feet, prevention is better than cure. I've been breaking in my corcorans these last few days and I've had no foot problems whatsoever, even walking the huge hill at Cerberus, because I made some preparations. How did I do it? I first put some good quality insoles in them (in my case, Sorbothane double strike ones), next I put a "Compeed" blister plaster on each of my heels, to prevent boot rub and third, I've wore good quality Bridgedale merino walking socks or "1000 mile" anti blister socks.

I can't speak highly enough of Compeed. I've been using them for 20 or so years with no problems, after learning about blisters the hard way. They are designed to apply over a blister but, they work just as well at preventing them in the first place, due to their cushioned design. I picked up a job lot of 10 on ebay for a couple of quid, far cheaper than buying them at Boots!

Good insoles help to put a spring in your step as well as cushioning your feet and, coupled with some good socks, you shouldn't have any foot problems. It's a cliche I know but, if you look after your feet, they'll look after you.
