Brocks Menu

I enjoyed much of Brock's feeding, though not the weevils in the Weetabix, nor odd entomological slices in one thinly cut meat loaf, nor an occasional strand of fried, thinly sliced onion that turned out to be a 'steam fly'. I would not touch the 'China Chiloa' after that. Do I have the name/spelling right? China Chiloa was a curried mince laced with peas and fried onion. I've tried Google but the 'brain of the world' has not heard of it.

Sounds like this maybe dry mince curry - and kind of sweep up of all the left over odds and ends with peas?

It proved a great way to develop a taste for curries. There was also provided some amusement when watching junior HM Customs officers very quickly realising the curry with which they had piled their plate was actually very spicy hot and struggled to finish!

IN ww2 Brocks feeding was pretty rotten. Fresh food was scarce. We were told that fresh veg n the Susez anal was too expensive whereas it was dirt cheap ( as I found out in tankers later). Boiled puddings served e.ach day under various names - Victoria, College, BalckCap. They were all the same - just the location of the odd raisin It was jokingly said that the cook clombed the ladder up th efunnel with a handful of currants and threw them down the galley skyight - ad it depended how far he climbed which decided their position .

I would imagine in WW2 the food was pretty grim everywhere.

Actually food was OK at sea in ww2. I was in Brocks 43 to 47 and tankers were much better feeders than Brocks. Mind you the old Maihar my first ship
had no refrigeration or running water so things were a bit primitive
