My son is in Afghanistan and every now and then he rings me on a satellite phone. A few weeks back he was complaining about the food. Now I spent a lot of time in the Army and diggers complain about everything: food, boots, weapons, weather, too hot, too cold, too wet, it's their god given right as a soldier to be whinging about something.
I've sent him a couple of parcels. Postage of parcels is free up to 2Kg and therein lies a problem. I bought him some cans of Stagg Chilli as well as other stuff including his favourite Ballantyne chocolate coated sultanas which are hard to get. But I had to leave the chilli out because the cans were too heavy.
I knocked one of them off today for lunch, Stagg Dynamite Hot Chilli on toast - not a bad snack. So I wrote to the company and asked if they would send some over to my son and his mates.
I'll keep you posted
Oh, if you would like to send something to my son and his mates, this is the address...
