‘Range Stew’: One of the British Army’s Best Known Secrets!

“The Band were somewhat buoyed by the provision of ‘range stew’. Range stew is a delicacy provided primarily by Military chefs in a large thermos flask, known as a Norwegian. The contents of the stew are a closely guarded secret and it is widely believed that to give any stew a name might constrain the chef to such an extent as to render its production worthless. On this occasion the range stew very clearly resembled a curry!” (Dunphy, 2012).

I remember the days.
