My small Army Catering Corps collection

Recommended Posts


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

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!

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
