Re: Boil in the bags meals

We used to flog ‘em where I worked, and I would take them night fishing. Good, but not that much in ‘em... or perhaps I am a greedy pig! :lol:

Re: Ration Challenge

Not directly related to this topic but does anyone remember the "Action Against Hunger - Living Below the Line" campaign back in 2015/16?
