    I'm going through the container on property to try and cull all the "stuff" I've accumulated.

    After my husband's death, I couldn't throw away all his Army items and came across this thing (I have no idea what you call it).

    I'm presuming you put some sort of fire making material in it to be able to cook in the field.

    I'll try and post and picture.

    I think its a small field stove, maybe one that you burn gel packs in.

    Thanks lonewolf.

    I wonder if I can get the gel packs from somewhere. This was part of my husband's British Army kit, so not sure if they issue the same type of thing in Aus.

    i'm the opposite way around, I've bought some of the gel packs at a market last year but I don't have the stove yet.
    Try ebay, I have seen them on there.

    apart from food, we buy everything on line, being so far from the big stores travelling isn't really an option, besides its keeps our mail lady-who lives locally- in a job!

    I drive to the post office once a week or fortnight to pick up the mail. It's like Christmas (apart from the bills, that is). The main supermarket is 2 hours drive, so that doesn't happen often I can tell you!

    the supermarkets we use are a 40 minute drive each way, but most people would call these small stores, a big supermarket dosent exist in this rural area, the nearest would be in the next county at least 80 miles away a 2 hour journey on our roads.

    We're exactly the same. Spar is 40 minutes drive each way (very expensive) but the big supermarkets like Tesco or Morrisons is 2 hours drive. You can't just nip off to the shop for milk, which can be inconvenient but you get used to it.

    I'm not a fan of takeaway food, but by geez, sometimes it would be nice to drive up the road and get a nice fish and chips for a change.

    we use UHT milk, have for over 20 years, dosent need to be put in a fridge until its opened so can be stored anywhere.
    we dont have any take aways here, there is a decent fish and chip shop 9 miles away but fish is getting very expensive and the portion sizes are crazy!

    We also use UHT milk, but only in emergencies when we've run out of the fresh stuff.

    I'd kill for a decent fish and battered chips. We don't get battered chips here. Don't know why, they are delicious! :D

    Ooooh, I just had an idea! We used to go to a place that sells British Military surplus supplies in Nottingham called Anchor Supplies. The stuff you can get there is awesome. We always bought a heap of stuff when we were there. I'll have a look and see if they sell online.

    look for "gel fuel blocks" on ebay (or Amazon), just seen 12 blocks in 2 packs for £7.50 over here.

    Thanks. Found them. 6 for $5 or 12 for $18. Be better off getting two of the 6 for $5. You'd think the 12 packs would be cheaper. Go figure.

    Lonewolf and Blitz...thanks for sharing. Until today I had no idea what was UHT milk...now I know as I looked it up.

    I've learned something today...Thanks.

    I keep powdered milk about for such purposes...use it on occasion and restock.


    Thanks,
    Watcherchris
