My small Army Catering Corps collection


Recommended Posts

Hi

I have just started collecting  medals to what I would say is an under estimated unit in the army. I know that they are not a famous line regiment but I feel they certainly should be acknowledged for their commitment to ensuring troops are feed

The Catering Corps is a unit that is always working to feed and ensure soldiers are always feed, they don;t have the same down times as other units in the field be it in training or operations and often have to work under very trying environments and conditions, just as their civilian counter parts do as well. Yes they like chefs in the other 2 services often are given a hard time for some of the food they produce, but trust me unless you have been in the situation they often find themselves in  and what they have to work with it is not as simple as people think

These are what I have been able to collect over the last month or so and will be on the look out for more to the A.C.C. in the coming period  

 

regards

Well done Paul. Always good to branch out and start another collection although the challenge of resisting to do so can be difficult. From my army days I recall that the acronym for the Army Catering Corps - ACC - was oftentimes equated to the Aldershot Cement Company - a wholly undeserved name!
