    Should be juggled between gloved hands while wielding can-spanner, it is also traditional to use the hot water for shaving and washing afterwards (this is made easier as compo tins don't have labels).
    Still here 40+ years later, and a lot of the even older farts i was dining with earlier tonight!

    Dougie celebrated his 87th tonight, despite Jerry, and UK plc for the last 70 years!
    Dad only did 85, fortnight+ short of his Regt no at 86.

    Here's a glass to them all, not much fun in the 20's and30's, a sh@@y War, 50's, then the 60's were too late for most ordinary working blokes and women.
    There aren't many like them now.

    Talking Blimey, White Scout Car????

Sometimes these would be heated and cooled over days and not once was there a problem, so long as you opened the can wearing gloves.
    Has anyone tried that afloat?
    Or M3 Half Track??
    Which war, ROman , as the mercenary hoplite said???

    Default Right on Fergus and Good night

    Night all, bot and half of red, 3 pints of guiness, 'Absent Friends', and good company, leave you a bit maudlin

    With the greatest respect to Ferguson I must try and bookmark this for whenever questions are asked on these forums about 'how I can get my wife/girlfriend to come sailing more often. With domestic habits like these how could any woman resist?

    Ubergeekian's Breakfast Tip Number 1: You can eat Kelloggs multipack cereals straight from their little boxes. Open the box, open the inner wrapper, pour in milk, eat, chuck.

    you have just replicated fusion food on a boat

    the bringing together of new ideas

    I think there could be a market for a pan specially designed boiling cans

    In the US they have perforations on the side as well as the top, so you can do this with the box lying down and hence slightly more bowl-like.

    Default yachting mags

    could you ever imagine a member of staff on any of the yachting magazines in the UK covering stuff like this

    eating straight out of the ceral packet

    tinned haggis

    paper plates on plastic ones

    which yacht manufacturer would be prepared to take a full page advert up against an artical that included this sort of information.

    Incredible stuff chaps
