Cooking At The Battle Field, Part 2

Some soldiers are not only good at military schooling but also at cooking. We met those who attend the military school house in the previous post and are going to continue our acquaintance today.

Military Cook’s School #190 that belongs to the Western Military District has celebrated its 50th anniversary. Chief of the School says that conscript personnel is not willing to become cooks and prefer to be a part of air assault forces or intelligence service.

A bit of agitation: Western military district is an operational and strategic unit of the Russian military forces located at the territory of 25 districts in the European part of the country. ‘We all have once anchor that can keep anyone who is willing to be kept, and it is a call of duty’.

      I know the difference. NATO field-kitchen can work only on gas, while Russian field-kitchen can work on gas, firewood, coil and everything which could burn.

    Same kitchen used in the second battle for Kursk.

    When I was in the military some guys used to kind of look down on the cooks which I never understood I mean it is a very vital job and at least in my experience the food was pretty damn good though I was in the USAF and they strive for a higher standard of living than other branches.

    Damn-it ER, now I want some freshly baked bread!

    Interesting, but rather different than in the US forces. In the field the officers don’t have a separate eating area. Don’t know if bread is baked in the field any more, either, with the shelf-stable bread. Surprising to see so many small cans of meat. You’d think there would be larger cans, so fewer cans to open.
