The menu for the evening's festivities included dishes from the era of the Supply Corps' founding, including Alamode Beef, Route Cakes, and Cabinet Pudding
. The very talented Food Service and Wardroom Divisions, including the Wardroom Officer herself, prepared the entire menu.
My last competition asked what came next when Lib Dem Charlie Kennedy said: "He is waving two fingers at me, but that is the signal he usually makes to..." Answer: "...the Government." Tenners to B Horton, of Caerphilly for "...to order a couple of pints" and to Peter Ormond, of Leamington Spa, for "...to ask for two helpings of Cabinet pudding
And for pudding: stewed fruit well sweetened, three or four dozen plain pastry biscuits, two dozen fruit turnovers, four dozen cheesecakes, two cold cabinet puddings
in moulds, two blancmanges in moulds, a few jam puffs, one large cold plum pudding, a few baskets of fresh fruit, three dozen plain biscuits, a piece of cheese, 6lbs of butter, four quarter loaves of household bread, three dozen rolls, six loaves of tin bread, two plain plum cakes, two pound cakes, two sponge cakes, a tin of mixed biscuits and 1/2 lb of tea.
