Haybox

From ARRSEpedia
Jump to: navigation, search

A largely obsolete method of conveying hot or cold drinks and food from A to B - usually from the mess/cookhouse to the ranges. The Haybox was the creation of a twisted individual, who, knowing that these would be used in great proliferation and for myriad tasks, decided to make them as heavy as possible - before anything actually went in them.

These fucking insulated aluminium boxes were responsible for more back/shin/knee/foot injuries than any amount of wounds sustained on operations, as many a poor sod wrestled and struggled to hoy these things out of 'lannies' and 4 tonners. Now (thankfully) replaced by the Norwegian.
