Racing Spoon

The only implement you'll ever need for eating Compo rations.

The Gucci racing spoon came with a compo can opener attached by para cord to the handle. This made for complete self-sufficiency in compo terms.

'BMG anecdote

In the search for the ultimate squaddy proof racing spoon, my old CQMS proffed a load of green plastic spoons from Broadmoor. Allegedly these were unbreakable to stop the inmates injuring themselves or each other. The first one was returned to him in two halves after less than 5 minutes so no gold star. If you can get your hands on a MRE (Spam rat pack) then the spoon supplied is indestructable and makes a great racing spoon.
