  • Combat coffee

    In keeping with the recent threads on rations, here's an instructional video on the preparation of coffee in a combat zone (beware of language) with some useful information about Canadian Individual Meal Packs:

    "On the plains of hesitation, bleach the bones of countless millions, who on the very dawn of victory, laid down to rest, and in resting died.

    Never give up!!"

      "Let us be clear about three facts. First, all battles and all wars are won in the end by the infantryman. Secondly, the infantryman always bears the brunt. His casualties are heavier, he suffers greater extremes of discomfort and fatigue than the other arms. Thirdly, the art of the infantryman is less stereotyped and far harder to acquire in modern war than that of any other arm." ------- Field Marshall Wavell, April 1945.

                  That's almost too subtle but on the other hand third row down second from the left does it for me.
