There would be more than a can of corned beef and a cracker...and yes, it is safe to assume that the Canadian Army has developed new meals since '45 :roll:

To carry on:

It isn't for nothing that the British Army is refered to as "Shiteaters". The food is terrible.
Every year when a new unit would come over on a "Pond Jump" we'd watch the Advance Party (since their kitchens etc wouldn't be manned) eat in the Canadian dining room. The reaction over a simple salad bar was consistently nothing short than amazement.

True now they can freeze dry coned beef to reduce transport cost. Should we be training the Afghans to raise grain and cattle for troops, mabye we could train Afghans to drive cattle to NATO outposts and run buthcer camps. And terhe aws more then corned beef and a cracker, there was corned beef, can of fruit (apples, oranges, apricots), and a can of bread.

CF IMP's aren't freeze dried. Corned Beef died it's 'orrible 'orrible death a ways back.

As for the local purchase of food, I'm not sure what the level is at, if any at all. There are a number of conditions that have to be met.

You don't get corned beef :cry:

Yeah I have some familiarity with CF rations, the goulash sucks it's not even red. Army rations should consist of lasagna

They have CFIA overseas? The rurles for fedral permits in packing plants are way to strict.
