I also have experienced the bounce problem a few times.
Could someone send me a copy in any format to firstname.lastname@example.org?
I have an original copy of the Manual of Army Catering Services Part 2 Recipes (1945) that I will sell if anyone is interested. It was used by a 2 Lt J. D. Rooke.It may as well go to someone who loves to cook rather than someone who collects books!
Good Morning Wallis, I would be more than pleased if you could send me, your Manual of Military Cooking 1945, I have just purchased the 1940 Manual, and the comparison of Recipes would be great to know. I would be happy to pay postage and any other costs. Many thanks. Geordie.
Hi there Geordie,
if you email me at email@example.com, we can sort it out
on its way
I don't know if you still get all your email's but can you please also email me the MAC Manual to firstname.lastname@example.org
on its way
Where are you ? You haven't filled in your profile location I would be interested in taking it over from you.
I am very much interested in your manual - do you still have it ????
I sometimes re-create a wartime field kitchen at wartime weekends where we cook everything from scratch to original recipies.
We have quite a bit of original catering corps equipment, dixies, butchers kit, no1 field stove - which is like a flame thrower on its side, fueld by petrol and VERY scary to use !!
Original recipies are great to use and the quantities quoted are fantastic. I am very interested in how the soldiers were fed and the lines of supply which ensured there well being. I even make Hard Tack for them to try and eat.
Veterans love to see this and try the food they used to eat as it brings back so many memorys, the enjoyment they geat from it can not be measured.
If you want it to go to a good home I am putting my name forward.....
Love to hear from you (or anyone else) who may have something I could use.
If by any chance you have a copy of the Army Manual ( Catering) on PDF I would be very grateful if you could e-mail me a copy, I served in the ACC for 12 years back in the 70's and I was issued with, so any chance of getting a copy,well that would be great
What is it with MAC Manual,They seem to be like gold dust,I still use mine that was issued in 1970and its a right mess, index missing pages missing,food on the cover,recipes in both metric and imperial,but would I ever get rid off it .........Not on your life, But I would like to thank Peter McCracken for supplying me with the updated 1990 MAC,S
I have been searching high and low to find my copy of the macs manual, so I can remember all the good times I had whwn I was an apprentice all those years ago. I can not find it anywhere, which suprises me considering the size and weight of the thing.
I would really appreciate it if you would send me a copy on PDF. then I can put it on a usb stick, how times have changed, if you had told me you could get that great big book on a keyring 27 years ago i would have called you an idiot, I remember saying something like that to a guy at school called Wiliam Gates., wonder how he's doing.
