Yes, after a week, BR ham sandwiches had curled enough to be relabeled as sausage rolls

(A NTNOCN joke, there)

Being a shift worker (365/24/7, 2 days on, 2 days off = 42 hr week) for most of my 12 years RAF service (1961-1973) I and my single, living-in fellow shiftworkers suffered the vagaries of "out of hours" catering. On a large station like Akrotiri where my watch consisted of a Sgt, a Cpl & about 7 SAC/SACW we usually got "reasonable" out-of-hours catering although the catering staff seemed to begrudge having to feed folk who didn't work office hours. However, on a smaller station it was not unknown for an evening "meal" to consists of a Robirch pork pie and an apple; those Robirch pork pies contained a tiny piece of un-named meat (shades of CMOT Dibbler) which rattled around when the case-hardened pie was shaken.
