Brit Troops Without Loo Paper

Brit Troops Without Loo Paper

British troops in the Gulf are missing some essentials.

And, on the food front, the fare looks grim:

"After the 1991 Gulf War, discarded MREs were found all over the desert. The Americans have brought huge stocks with them because one of the plans is to drop MREs over Iraq to feed hungry Iraqis. Often called meals-rejected-by-everyone, the MRE diet includes chicken la king known as chicken la death and smokey frankfurters. The British military rations, which include one roll of loo paper, boast tasty delicacies such as Lancashire hot pot, beef stew, chicken pasta and sausage and baked beans."

I'd go with the hot dogs rather than the hot pot.
