First priority when packing your kit on excercise was to get hold of some rolls of CUMFYBUM.

Sounds a bit like the current situation.

No Motorway service station is safe when troops on excersisie stop! 😄

What, no Geordies on this thread?  As Safety Officer on the very first Battle Group through BATUS, I was hitching a lift with a Platoon HQ of the Infantry (Green Howards) Company at lunchtime.  Platoon Sergeant suggests 'Jam and cheese sandwiches, lads?'. Compo cheese went down well (though I seldom got jam and cheese on bread since wartime in Newcastle, mores the pity.  My Southern regiment would have laughed me to scorn had I suggested it),

And, to add to the Squaddies Stew post, it was a standing joke in BAOR on the 70s that Mojo Stew consisted of ALL the components of compo stewed together (including the soap).

I'm not a Geordie, but from Co. Durham, used to love the processed cheese and jam sarnies.
