Hands up if you've ever been absolutely sick and tired of eating this crap.

Australian Defence Force "Combat Ration, One Man". Unlike US MREs, CR1Ms are a 24 hour ration pack with enough tucker for three meals and a few snacks as well as sundries such as a FRED (F#@!ing Ridiculous Eating Device), some dateroll, a little plastic vial of matches of which the pink "storm" matches always fizz out rather than flame, and the pièce de résistance - a little piece of nylon scouring pad with some soap already on it. The genius who invented the "pads, scouring" in the rat packs deserves a knighthood, and not one of those plastic "Knight of Australia" ones either -I'm talking about a proper royal knighthood with swords and Queens and posh churches and all the rest. He or she is truly an unsung national treasure.
Who's old enough to remember tins of "ham and egg" and "lamb and vegetables with rosemary" in ration packs and what about "Greenlites" matches and "biscuits, survival"? #ADF
