School Lunchboxes 15:57 - Apr 7 with 1222 viewsMetallica_Hoop

I had a grey A-Team one as a kid.

I remember it well and my mate at work is 7 years younger than I and also remembers themed lunchboxes.

We also remember the themos they came with that took a third of the room inside!
What was that all about? I drank tea as a kid but were kids meant to have a great big thermos of tea with them to prepare them for working life on a building site? You couldn't fit a decent meal in one with the flask in.

I've just been reminded if it today. Why a giant flask?

Pretty sure it was this one. The inside had mould the size of the Amazon basin. The flask stank of too-milky tea.

I’m surprised you are still alive.

You’ve just reminded me Konk - we were a fish paste family - Shippams, I believe; I’ll check the spelling tomorrow. Advert was weird, something about a nice pot of tea. Never understood it. We were also partial to a club biscuit - orange was the jackpot.

Can't believe I actually found the one I had circa 1981. The web is brilliant.

You know, I sometimes get a yearning for Shippam's fish paste, still found in supermarkets. I'm planning on eating a lot more of that sort of crap once the kids leave home and I don't have to do all that nutritious meal stuff.

Orange club biscuits were also great, I only ever got them as part of a packed lunch in the holidays. Schooldays it was school dinners, lunch boxes didn't enter into it.

Plus a wagon wheel if dad had overtime.

It's being so happy that keeps me going.

Salt cured beef brisket, usually spiced. Actually, quite a time consuming and expensive meal compared to boiling (back) bacon.
But, my dear old mother came from farming stock who ate and butchered all their own meat, so what I consumed as a kid looked like this...


I suspect you may have had to endure...

“I’m surprised you are still alive”

Mate, you should have seen what we had for tea...

Other sandwich fillings: corned beef, garage/Nan ham, and boiled egg. Strangely, never cheese.

Club biscuit hierarchy: Orange (the fuc king don), Mint, Plain, and then the black currant one. What a sh it idea that one was.

My Nan used to make me corned beef and tomato sandwiches and I loved ‘em. One day she says “we’re out of tomatoes shall I just do you a corned beef sandwich?” Of course I said thinking nothing of it. The first bite I spat out realising all along I’d been eating some kind of rank salted cable-knit cardigan passing itself off as meat but up until then only getting away with it with the cunning assistance of a tomato. I’ve been a vegetarian now for 37 years.

Sorry mate but it’s the reverse order for me,although mint might take the place of the orange one in last place.

My next door neighbour was in the tv advert for club in the early 70’s.He was one of the Boy Scouts in that advert.Horrible little fecker he was too.
