    I can't say that I've ever heard of it but it may still be sold here under a different name. I take it that it's a tinned meat intended to go into a pie rather than a meat pie that's been canned? What type of meat is it, beaf, pork or something else?

    But, the greatest of all proper ANZAC biscuits. I really didn't know what they were when I went to Oz. The tastiest biscuits known to man. Our cooks used to make a tray of them and leave them on the serving bays in the kitchens. The Poms have never heard of them and I've never seen them here.

    Maybe one of you ANZACS can explain...........

    I love corned beef especially with a hearty mustard. Back when the army baked their own bread I would barter for a loaf. In the field especially in the summer because the fat would melt in the can. Cut a couple thick slices then spoon the corned beef and rendered fat on it with a huge spoonful of mustard. Wash it down with a couple ice cold beers at the end of a long day. Of course that's when I was in my early 20's and worked it off. I now treat myself to maybe two cans a year now.

    Processed cheese was invented by Kraft in WW1.

    Probably one of the biggest foods developed in WW2 is one we never think of as having come from the military. We consume millions of tons of it every year without giving its origin a thought. It’s found around the globe and common as a bag of chips (crisps in the UKicon).

    It’s the cheese flavoring in many of the snack foods we eat today. Dehydrated cheese powder is light weight and lasts a very long time. Just what the US military was looking in WW2.

    The military used the Spray-drying method to dehydrate other foods, like milk, eggs and ……….

    Bully beef? I think canned bully beef(corned beef)made it's rounds for WW1. I sure ate enough during certain years in the army. I'd melt the grease to the closed end of the can on the manifold of an armored vehicle and open the other with it's key. I'd use a knife to eat it and leave the grease at the bottom...very quick meal.
